SPECIAL: Jared Kushner Working for Israel to Enable Saudi Arabian Nuclear Attack Against Iran

Robert David STEELE Vivas









ROBERT STEELE: I have learned from a person I trust that Jared Kushner is being used by Israel to rapidly enable Saudi Arabian nuclear attack capability against Iran. In his recent call to the Lockheed CEO asking for a 12% discount (it should have been 50%) on Lockheed’s missile defense system, Kushner was overheard discussing the arming of the Saudis with nuclear missiles with what sounded like an Israeli intelligence officer.

My source tells me that the Israeli’s believe they can incite a limited nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and that the nuclearization of Saudi Arabia will discourage Russia from deepening its support of Syria while also serving as a threat against Iran. I am reminded of the treason of Zbigniew Brzezinski, who gave Pakistan the nuclear bomb (and indirectly, with Saudi funding and Israel assistance, also to North Korea). And we should not forget that the CIA gave Iran the plans for a modern nuclear bomb is a covert operation that was as stupid as any I have ever seen. It is very likely that Kushner is acting with the explicit approval of President Donald Trump, and that there is also a high risk of a limited US nuclear attack on North Korea in the near future. I am very concerned by the increased possibility that our legitimately-elected President is losing his mind to an active psychotronics (mind-control) against him by the Deep State. It is clear to me that both the Vice President and the Chief of Staff are traitors who actively represent the Deep State, and our President is not being properly protected by the Secret Service or the Federal Bureau of Investigation. If he appoints Joe Lieberman as Director of the FBI, he will be signing his death warrant and assuring four more years of Deep State control of the USA.


Saudi Kingfish Forgets Bandar, Blames Syrian Destruction On Syrians

Saudi king tells Donald Trump Syrians ‘brought destruction to their own country’


‘Syria too used to be one of the most advanced countries,’ King Salman tells President

The king of Saudi Arabia, a major backer of rebel forces in Syria, appeared to lament the destruction caused by the civil war while meeting with Donald Trump in Riyadh.

“Syria too used to be one of the most advanced countries,” King Salman told Mr Trump, according to a White House press pool report.

“We used to get our professors from Syria,” the King continued. “They served our kingdom. Unfortunately, they too brought destruction to their own country. You can destroy a country in mere seconds, but it takes a lot of effort.”

The Saudi Arabian capital is the US leader’s first stop on his nine-day, five-country tour abroad.

The civil war in Syria has been underway for more than six years, fought between Bashar al-Assad’s forces, anti-government rebels, Isis and Islamist groups linked with al-Qaeda.

Trump, Now Saudi Toadie, Sees Hezbollah as “ISIS”, Evidently

[Trump wimps-out under Saudi pressure and allows the royal camel jockies to mandate America’s legal moves to destroy all of the branches of ISIS, even the “Islamic State in Saudi Arabia’’.  Instead, he joins the self-proclaimed desert royals in targeting Hezbollah, for coming to the aid of their Syrian allies when the International Arab/American “Jihad” descended upon them (US, Saudi Arabia issue joint terrorist designation ).]


WASHINGTON — Saudi Arabia, touted by President Trump as a key ally in the fight against the Islamic State, has helped block a Trump administration proposal to impose sanctions against a Saudi branch of the terrorist group, documents show.

The plan to add the Islamic State’s Saudi affiliate to a UN list of terrorist groups was quietly killed two weeks ago in a bureaucratic maneuver at the Security Council, records show. US officials familiar with the move said the Saudis objected to the public acknowledgment of a separate Saudi offshoot of the group in the kingdom.

‘‘They don’t want to admit they have an issue in their backyard,’’ said a US official familiar with the events, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.The news of the maneuver comes as Saudi Arabia hosts Trump in Riyadh in his first visit to a foreign capital since becoming president.

US and Saudi officials are expected to use the visit to underscore close cooperation between the two countries in battling Islamist extremist groups. Riyadh has contributed money, arms, and fighter jets to the international coalition fighting the Islamic State in Syria.

The terrorist group in 2014 declared the existence of a separate Saudi province, or wilayat, with its own cadre of Saudi operatives seeking to overthrow the monarchy. The group has since claimed responsibility for several attacks inside the country, including a suicide bombing at a mosque in 2015 that killed 15 people.

The Trump administration’s proposal to add the ‘‘Islamic State in Saudi Arabia’’ to a list of UN-sanctioned terrorist groups was formally blocked on May 5 by Senegal and Egypt, two members of the UN Security Council.

Egyptian diplomats explained to their US counterparts that they acted at the behest of Saudi Arabia, according to US officials and internal e-mails. It was the second time in a year that Saudi officials intervened to prevent the local affiliate from being added to the UN terrorist list.

A senior Saudi official acknowledged his government’s opposition to the plan. He said formal recognition of a Saudi branch of the Islamic State would have been both unfair to Saudi Arabia and an exaggeration of the local cell’s significance.

Acceding to the US proposal could have resulted in ‘‘reputational risks’’ for the kingdom, possibly including losses in tourist revenue and higher insurance premiums, the official said.

Saudi Arabia is one of several countries that have opposed US efforts to add local branches of the Islamic State to the UN terrorist list. Russian diplomats earlier this month quashed a US proposal to sanction Islamic State chapters in Libya, Afghanistan, and Yemen.

Trump Enters the Saudi Trap, Smiling

Trump to take more measured tone on Islam in major speech today


“Many of these leaders have expressed growing concern about terrorism, the spread of radicalization and Iran’s role in funding both.”—Trump


The majority of the terrorist acts and terrorist organizations involved in the war of terror have been, and still are, Sunni.  ISIS, al-Nusra and al-Qaeda in all of its manifestations, are Sunni Takfiri terrorists, strictly following the Wahhabi teachings.  To blame Iran for the spread of this patently evil enterprise is an outright lie, which can only be accepted by the most brainwashed cattle and worshipers of Zionism.  It was Saudi money and Saudi volunteers for all of these terrorist groups from the beginning, setting-up the smugglers’ “rat lines” from Syria into Iraq, which originally sent terrorists into Iraq to kill Shia and Americans.  Now that the Iraq conflict has been exported, the “rat lines” have been reversed, sending the terror from Iraq into Syria and beyond (Baghdad-Damascus Highway), just as the Libyan fiasco became a transport corridor bearing weapons and Islamist lunatics from Africa into Syria.

Trump is there to turn reality upon its head, if we allow him to add new layers of lie-based wars onto the old conflicts, which he promised to end.—COMMENT

Pentagon Planning World’s Biggest Game of “Chicken” At Intersection of Jordan, Iraq and Syria

Eastern Syria under spotlight with main players racing for more gains

Source: Xinhua

by Hummam Sheikh Ali

DAMASCUS, May 19 (Xinhua) — The Syrian army is shifting its focus toward securing the triangle of the Jordanian and Iraqi borders in southern Syria as such areas are crucial for the army to cut off the rebel supply lines and secure border areas against the Islamic State (IS) group and other rebel groups, some of which are supported by the Western powers.

But the process is not that easy, as the United States and the British army have bases near the Tanf area on the borders with Iraq.

Washington seems to want the eastern part of Syria to be an area under its sway, and doesn’t want the Syrian army to advance in that area, analysts said.

A day earlier, U.S. warplanes struck Syrian pro-regime forces as they were advancing near the Tanf area.

Reports said the strike came to protect British and American soldiers in the country’s southeast.

On Friday, the Syrian army confirmed the U.S. strike, saying the U.S. attempt will not terrorize the army from continuing to fight the terrorist groups.

In a statement, the army said the U.S.-led anti-terror coalition attacked one of the military positions near the Tanf area in the Syrian desert near the Iraqi borders on Thursday afternoon, leaving a number of “martyrs and some material losses.”

The army described the attack as a “flagrant aggression,” adding that it exposes the “false allegations of the coalition about fighting terrorism.”

The statement said the U.S. claims that they have warned the forces from advancing before firing are completely rejected.

“The Syrian army is fighting terrorist groups on its ground, and no force has the right to determine the fronts on which the army fight the terrorist groups,” the statement said.

It added that “those who claim to be fighting terrorist groups, should not fire at the Syrian army because it’s the legitimate force fighting the terrorist groups, but should direct their fire against the terrorist groups.”

The statement stressed that the Syrian army will continue the war on the terrorist groups and the U.S. attack will not terrorize the army from continuing the battles on terrorism.

The military statement is a message to the U.S. and its allies that the Syrian army will not agree to the line of influence the U.S. is trying to draw in Syria.

Pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV cited an unnamed senior security Syrian official as saying that there is a Syrian-Iranian-Russian consensus about the need to advance to fight the IS militants in the Syrian Desert, toward the Syrian-Iraqi borders.

The source said that U.S. drones were spotted in the sky, watching the movements of the Syrian army near Tanf, adding that the U.S. asked the Russians to convince the Syrian army to stay 15 km away from the “illegitimate” U.S. bases in Tanf.

The strike was also read by analysts as a message to both the Syrian and Iraqi governments.

On Thursday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad met with visiting Iraq’s national security advisor, Faleh al-Fayad, with the two sides vowing to boost cooperation in anti-terrorism war, according to state news agency SANA.

During the meeting, al-Fayad conveyed a message from Iraq’s Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi, which included “Iraq’s keenness to continue coordinating the efforts with Syria to fight the IS on the Iraqi-Syrian borders,” the report said.

Al-Fayad also said eliminating the terrorist group demands “honest” intentions by all concerned countries as terrorism threatens the whole world.

For his part, Assad said that the achievements made by military forces of the two countries in the war against IS constitutes an important step to restore peace and stability to both sides.

For the U.S., the cooperation between the Iranian-backed Assad forces and Iraq’s Hashed al-Shabi paramilitary forces doesn’t serve the interests of Washington even though both groups are fighting the IS militants in Iraq and Syria.

The Hashed al-Shabi is widely-perceived to be backed by Iran, as the Iraqi government is also a Shiite-led one, so Washington doesn’t want a Shiite, Iranian influence to cross borders between Iraq and Syria, that’s why the borders between Iraq and Syria are becoming the focus of the U.S. influence in Syria.

The U.S.-led anti-terror coalition has been backing the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in a military operation to defeat IS in Syria’s northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of IS.

The SDF is advancing, but Raqqa is not going to be the last battle against IS, as Deir al-Zour province is expected to witness the final battle against IS, as the terror group controls large swathes of territories in that province on the Syrian-Iraqi borders.

Additionally, all the IS commanders and their families fleeing Raqqa are heading toward Deir al-Zour.

So despite the fact that the U.S. wants its influence area to be in that part of the country, the Syrian army is also working toward securing Deir al-Zour and the areas on the Iraqi-Syrian borders, out of its “legitimate” right in the country, particularly that the central part of Deir al-Zour is still under the government control but besieged by IS.

Maher Ihsan, a Syrian political analyst, told Xinhua that the triangle of the Syrian-Iraqi and Jordanian borders in southern Syria will be the focus of active military operations, which will expose the U.S. hidden agendas, as Washington is also working with the Jordanians near Syria’s southern province of Daraa to create a buffer zone.

He said that the Tanf in particular is so important for the Syrian army, which has reached 40 km from that area, as the army wants to control that border crossing to prevent the advance of the rebels in that area.

He noted that the U.S. wants to protect around 4,000 rebels it had trained and stationed in Tanf, as the U.S. and British troops are also backing them in that crossing.

The aim of the U.S. is to have those troops advancing from Tanf toward the IS-held city of Bukamal in the countryside of Deir al-Zour, before moving on toward the city itself, he added.
