While the Saudis and Israelis appear to be enemies, the two in fact agree on many regional issues and are the two biggest U.S. allies in the Middle East.

A former senior Saudi military general traveled to Israel and met with government officials this week in Saudi Arabia’s latest move to forge relations and ties with Israel despite appearing to be one of its main public critics and branding itself as the defender of Palestine and its people.

Retired General Anwar Eshki, (pic above)who has held several senior positions in the Saudi government and its military, travelled to Israel with a delegation of academics and business people and met Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold (pic above) and Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major-General Yoav Mordechai, according to a report by Haaretz.

In an interview with Israel’s Army Radio Sunday, Eshki called Palestinian efforts against the occupation “terror” and said that Israel’s actions were behind it.

“To my knowledge, there is no cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia in counter-terrorism efforts, and though they share the same approach in seeking a solution, we want Israel to put an end to what has caused this terrorism.”

He further called Palestinian resistance groups who have broad support within Palestinian society – such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad – “terrorist” groups that are being “exploited” by Iran, according to the Times of Israel.

While the visit was not an official one, given that Eshki isn’t a Saudi official, he could not have carried out such meetings without the blessing and the permission of the Saudi monarchy.

“The Saudis want to open up to Israel,” Israeli lawmaker Esawi Freige, who met with Eshki Friday, said according to Middle East Eye.

“This is a strategic step for them. They said they want to continue what former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat started. They want to get closer to Israel. This is clearly evident.”

While the Saudis and Israelis appear to many to be enemies due to the decades-long Israeli occupation of Palestine, the two in fact agree on many regional issues. Saudi Arabia and Israel are the two biggest and most important U.S. allies in the region.

The two also see Iran as the main threat to their interests in the region and both came out and lobbied for months against the U.S.-led nuclear deal with Tehran.

Also, Saudi Arabia sees the Muslims Brotherhood – which is connected to Hamas – as a terrorist organization, which is in line with how Israel views both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Reports also suggest that the two countries are keen on expanding their military ties, which remains largely behind closed doors despite being an open secret in the region. In March it was suggested that the kingdom had purchased drones from Israel via South Africa.

Turkey Coup Detainees Tortured, Beaten And Raped With Police Shafts

Turkey detainees tortured

PRESS TV        Posted Sun., Eve., July 24, 2016

Amnesty International says it has ‘credible evidence’ that inmates detained after a failed military coup in Turkey have been subjected to torture and abuse.

The Britain-based group said in a report on Sunday that it had received reports that police in the capital Ankara and Istanbul were holding some detainees in “stress positions” for up to 48 hours.

The international rights group also noted that captives were being denied basic necessities such as food, water and medical treatment. The prisoners were also being threatened and verbally abused at the detention centers, it added.

The report has been based on interviews conducted with lawyers, doctors and one person on duty in a detention facility.

Two lawyers working in Ankara on behalf of the detainees told Amnesty that they had witnessed “senior military officers in detention being raped with a truncheon or finger by police officers.”

Amnesty International’s Europe director, John Dalhuisen, voiced serious concern over violations and abuses.

“Reports of abuse including beatings and rape in detention are extremely alarming, especially given the scale of detentions that we have seen in the past week. The grim details that we have documented are just a snapshot of the abuses that might be happening in places of detention,” Dalhuisen said

“It is absolutely imperative that the Turkish authorities halt these abhorrent practices and allow international monitors to visit all these detainees in the places they are being held,” he added.

Dalhuisen said abuses of human rights are never acceptable in any circumstances, noting, “Turkey is understandably concerned with public security at the moment, but no circumstances can ever justify torture and other ill-treatment or arbitrary detention.”

The senior Amnesty official also called for independent monitors to be granted access to detention sites across Turkey.

The Turkish government has rejected Amnesty’s report.

In a pre-recorded address broadcast on the national television on Saturday, President Erdogan said that so far, 934 schools, 109 student dorms, 15 universities, 104 foundations, 1,125 charity organization, 35 health institutes and 19 unions have been shut down amid the government’s crackdown on those believed to have played a role in the failed putsch.

The putsch began overnight on July 15, when a faction of the Turkish military declared it was in control of the country and the Ankara administration was no more in charge. Tanks, helicopters and soldiers then clashed with police and people on the streets of the capital and Istanbul.

The coup was gradually suppressed by military forces and people loyal to Erdogan. More than 300 people were killed from both sides, many of them on July 16.

Armageddon Approaches – “Washington Too Stupid To Take Putin’s Warning Seriously”

nuclear_explosion1

Information Clearing House By Paul Craig Roberts Sat., Night, July 23, 2016

The Western pubic doesn’t know it, but Washington and its European vassals are convincing Russia that they are preparing to attack. Eric Zuesse reports on a German newspaper leak of a Bundeswehr decision to declare Russia to be an enemy nation of Germany.

This is the interpretation that some Russian politicians themselves have put on the NATO military bases that Washington is establishing on Russia’s borders.

Washington might intend the military buildup as pressure on President Putin to reduce Russian opposition to Washington’s unilateralism. However, it reminds some outspoken Russians such as Vladimir Zhirinovsky of Hitler’s troops on Russia’s border in 1941.

Zhirinovsky is the founder and leader of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party and a vice chairman of the Russian parliament. In a confrontation with the editor of a German newspaper, Zhirinovsky tells him that German troops again on Russia’s border will provoke a preventive strike after which nothing will remain of German and NATO troops.

“The more NATO soldiers in your territory, the faster you are going to die. To the last man. Remove NATO from your territory”, Zhirinovsky stated.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has expressed his frustration with Washington’s reliance on force and coercion instead of diplomacy. It is reckless for Washington to convince Russia that diplomacy is a dead end without promise. When the Russians reach that conclusion, force will confront force.

Indeed Zhirinovsky has already reached that point and perhaps Vladimir Putin also. As I reported, Putin recently dressed down Western presstitutes for their role in fomenting nuclear war. See also:

Putin has made it clear that Russia will not accept US missile bases in Poland and Romania. He has informed Washington and the imbecilic Polish and Romanian governments. However, as Putin observed, “they don’t hear.”

The inability to hear means that Washington’s arrogance has made Washington too stupid to take seriously Putin’s warning. If Washington persists, it will provoke the preventive strike that Zhirinovsky told the German editor the Merkel regime was inviting.

Americans need to wake up to the dangerous situation that Washington has created, but I doubt they will. Most wars happen without the public’s knowledge until they happen.

The main function of the American left-wing is to serve as a bogyman with which to scare conservatives about the country’s loss of morals, and the main function of conservatives is to create fear and hysteria about immigrants, Muslims, and Russians.

There is no sign that Congress is aware of approaching Armageddon, and the media consists of propaganda. I and a few others try to alert people to the real threats that they face, but our voices are not loud enough. Not even Vladimir Putin’s voice is loud enough.

It looks like the West won’t hear until “there remains nothing at all of the German and NATO troops,” and of Poland and Romania and the rest of us.

In 3 Minutes Flat, This Vid Proves Politicians Are Puppets.

Fed Reserve bank 3

The Daily Sheeple Via Free Thought Project Posted July 22, 2016

An embarrassing, yet entirely telling ‘mistake’ was made at the Republican National Convention Monday night. If ever one needs fodder to fuel the flames of the notion of political theater — they needn’t look any further than potential first lady Melania Trump delivering a nearly identical speech to Michelle Obama.

However, as the Free Thought Project pointed out, politicians spewing identical rhetoric is not an isolated incident. It is so common, in fact, that the President, Vice President, Presidential candidates, senators, and congresspersons alike have all been caught plagiarizing content.

The brilliant folks at the Corbett Report decided to make a compilation video exposing this nonsense. The results are nothing short of jaw-dropping.

Politicians are puppets, and your only questions should be: “Who is writing their speeches? And who is pulling their strings?” This is a public service announcement from The Corbett Report.

This plagiarism, or rather scripting, should come as no surprise to Americans and the rest of the world. Instead, it should simply back up the notion that these people are merely puppets.

When speaking publicly, presidents, first ladies, and the majority of politicians, do little more than serve as passive reverberators for their controlling interests.

The teleprompter ushered in a new era of stringless puppetry and with it came speeches so generic and full of fluff that the incompetent elite can’t fill the screen fast enough without ripping off previous content.

The public hardly notices that the same hot air is blown at them over and over. The irony is that the left takes from the right and vice versa, yet the vacuous language, designed to sound like something of substance, has the intended effect on both sides — distract, divide, and pacify.

12 Yr. Old Boy Beheaded By Syrian US-Supported Rebels

Syrian civilians killed

RAW STORY via Agence France-Presse   Thurs., July 21, 2016

Syrian residents and the opposition expressed outrage on Wednesday at the brutal beheading of a child by a rebel group in Aleppo city, branding it a “heinous act”.

The horrific murder, captured in footage circulated on social media Tuesday, was carried out by Islamist rebels who accused the boy of fighting alongside government forces.

“How could they slaughter a child like this?” asked 25-year-old Bassel Zein, a barber in the opposition-held Al-Kalasseh neighbourhood of Aleppo.

“He should have been tried in a fair way and maybe swapped with the regime for rebel detainees instead of this heinous act,” he said.

Other residents said the beheading tarnished the name of the opposition, and at an Aleppo mosque on Tuesday night, Imam Mohamed Badawi railed against the killing.

“This is the work of criminals, and is forbidden in Islam,” he told the congregation gathered for sunset prayers.

The boy was decapitated by members of the Nureddin al-Zenki rebel group on the back of a pick-up truck on a public road in Aleppo’s opposition-controlled Al-Mashhad neighbourhood.

In the grisly footage, rebels accused the boy of fighting with a pro-regime Palestinian faction known as the Al-Quds Brigade and said he was captured during fighting north of Aleppo city.

But the Al-Quds Brigade issued a statement denying the boy was a member, and describing him as an ordinary 12-year-old Palestinian refugee.

The Nureddin al-Zenki group condemned the act as a “violation” in a statement on Tuesday, describing it as an “individual mistake that does not represent the general policy of the group”.

The organisation said it had detained those involved in the murder and set up a judicial committee to investigate the incident and issue a verdict as soon as possible.

The killing was also condemned by the opposition Syrian National Coalition, which expressed “shock at the horrific scenes” and urged the faction to follow through on its pledge to investigate and punish the perpetrators.

Amnesty International said Wednesday that the beheading was the latest “abhorrent” sign that some opposition groups are carrying out serious abuses with impunity.

“This horrific video… suggests some members of armed groups have truly plumbed the depths of depravity,” said Philip Luther, head of Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa programme

“It is yet another gruesome example of the summary killing of captives, which amounts to a war crime,” he said in a statement.

US Air Strike Kills 56 Syrian Civilians, Thought They Were ISIS Fighters. Yeah Right!

Syria child killing US soldier

TeleSur News    Posted Wed., July 20, 2016

An airstrike by the United States-led coalition killed at least 56 civilians Tuesday north of the besieged Islamic State group-held city of Manbij in northern Syria, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a report.

The group said the strike, which killed at least 11 children, targeted a group of civilians who were fleeing the fighting around the city between the multi-ethnic Syria Democratic Forces, or SDF, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, and fighters with the extremist group.

The SDF had launched an offensive to retake Manbij city late May with backing by the U.S. coalition. So far, the SDF has surrounded and fought their way into parts of the city, but the Islamic State group attacks still occur in some areas of the surrounding countryside.

The monitoring group said the U.S. coalition planes may have “mistaken” the civilians for fighters of the Islamic State group.

Also Monday, 21 people were killed in raids believed to have been conducted by U.S.-led coalition aircraft on Manbij’s northern Hazawneh quarter.

The Observatory said at least 160 civilians have died from airstrikes since the start of the Manbij offensive in late May.

Colonel Chris Garver, a spokesman for the U.S. coalition against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, refused to admit the killings by his aircrafts and added that he was looking into reports of civilian deaths but was being “extraordinarily careful to make sure” airstrikes were killing extremists fighters.

Meanwhile, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights recently voiced concern for the roughly 70,000 civilians believed to be trapped between warring parties in Manbij.

“Civilians have … reportedly been killed if they leave their homes or attempt to flee. Families are unable to access local cemeteries to bury their relatives who have died or been killed, and are burying them in their gardens or keeping the corpses in bunkers,” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said.

“Links In The Same Chain” – Nice Terror Attack, Turkish Coup Attempt

Turkey Coup Nice

Sputnik International       Posted Tues., July 19, 2016

In an attempt to analyze what lies behind the recent tragedy in France and coup attempt in Turkey, a RIA Novosti correspondent has concluded that the two events are “links of the same chain,” as there are common geopolitical processes which might have triggered such developments.

“From my point of view, there is a third power, an aspect of world politics, which even NATO is powerless to withstand,” Vladimir Lepekhin, who is also Director of EurAsEc (The Eurasian Economic Community) Institute, wrote in an analytical piece for RIA Novosti.

“The two countries have some certain things in common, which are being defined by the global causes of the ongoing processes within these countries,” the author adds.

He further explains that France and Turkey are the only NATO member states which strive to maintain independent foreign and internal policies.

This, he says, is the reason why these two countries have become targets for terrorists and other destructive forces.

Among such examples of independent policy, the author cites France’s objections to the US-backed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal and the recent announcement of the country’s junior minister for trade and commerce that “it will be ‘impossible for the European Union and the United States to conclude negotiations on a trade deal by the end of 2016.’”

“I think a deal in 2016 is impossible and everyone knows it, including those who say otherwise,” the minister, Matthias Fekl, said in a statement earlier in July.

Similar point of view was also expressed by the country’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who said that there cannot be a transatlantic treaty agreement since it goes against the interests of the European Union.

“No free trade agreement should be concluded if it does not respect EU interests. Europe should be firm. France will be vigilant about this,” Valls said, addressing members of the governing Socialist Party at the end of June.

With regards to Turkey, Lepekhin says, the recent coup attempt has “lanced an abscess,” which has been “growing like a weed” and which has bowled down the Turkish leadership.

“From the times of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (the founder of the modern Turkish state), the Turkish military has exercised much power relative to the president and the government. Thus, the Turkish military have found themselves subordinated to NATO generals and, hence, the US,” the author explains.

Therefore it turns out that modern Turkey is a country with an external management.

Hence this is the reason behind the downing of the Russian jet by the Turkish Air Forces, which laid all the responsibility on the Turkish leadership while the real initiator of the provocation was not blamed.

In such a situation, he says, the Turkish elites have no choice – either they consent to the dictatorship of the US or try to get rid of it to further pursue their independent policy.

“Erdogan’s group seems to have chosen the latter and that is why it has been supported by the country’s various political movements,” he says.

The author says that the strengthening of power around Erdogan might inevitably lead to Islamization and certain dictatorship, however the country has opted for the lesser of two evils.

No Post Today – My PC Is Slow, Erratic, Freezing.

Monday 10pm, July 18, 2016

My computer is out of order, to say the least. I’ve been looking for a proper “fix it” program to correct the slow-loading and corrupt files/ folders(?). I haven’t found one that will correct the several issues that are slowing my PC down. I hope to do a deeper search tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. Peace and blessings to all

Major Mistakes and Motives Behind Coup In Turkey

turkey coup

Global Research   By Moon of Alabama    Posted Sun. Night, July 17, 2016

Yesterday’s short coup attempt (real time MoA) by parts of the military against the wannabe-Sultan of Turkey failed. Some 200 people on both sides were killed, some 1,200 wounded.

The plotters’ major mistakes were:

(1) to not capture Erdogan and the leaders of his political and security organizations,

(2) to not shut down all means of mass communication, especially the Internet, except those under their strict control,

(3) to not put out a trusted public face to represent the coup.

Erdogan escaped and could orchestrate the counter to the coup. He could continue to communicate with his security management, foreign politicians and his supporters. Without any well known alternative leader the public had only Erdogan to follow.

The amateurish behavior of the coup plotter opens the question of who ran this show. Was this, as some asserted early on, an Erdogan plot to seize more power?

There are three possible motives/perpetrators behind this coup:

(1) the Islamic movement following the preacher Fetullah Gülen, a former Erdogan ally and now arch-enemy who lives in the U.S. and has CIA relations;

(2) the old Kemalist secularist movement in the military and deep state;

(3) the Erdogan AKP movement in a false flag operation to seize more power;

There is no evidence for any of these theses and none of them clearly fits the observed pattern.

The response will be harsh. Edogan will crack down on ANYONE he politically or personally dislikes – completely independent of their involvement in the coup. All political parties, even the mostly Kurdish HDP, spoke out against the coup while it was ongoing.

The religious Gülen movement also opposed it. Most of the involved soldiers were told that they were part of an exercise. It will not save any of them from Erdogan’s and his supporters’ wrath.

The somewhat coup-supportive early statements from Lavrov (“avoid bloodshed”) and Kerry (“stability!”) will increase Erdogan’s mistrust of any foreign official.

Erdogan will now become even more paranoid and unpredictable than he was before. The domestic atmosphere in Turkey will become extremely strained.

Repost: Movie 1988 “They Live”– Who Are The “They”? Alex Jones Is One

They Live News
Veterans Today   By Yukon Jack      Posted Sat., Night July 16, 2016

The movie “They Live” is science fiction but it is about us. This one was a bit early and only now are we catching on to its true meaning. John Carpenter based this movie from a short story called “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” and released it in 1988.

The appeal of this movie is gaining long after 1988, as America goes under economically and becomes a repressive police state. With the police acting more alien everyday, the real life conditions are making “They Live” prophetic, especially Los Angeles where many drones are now flying overhead.

Just like in the movie, the people are under hypnosis by the mind-controlling-media.

The “They” are those that own and control the media, because if we are under mind control, the media would have to be part of it. They are part of the plot of 911 because if someone else did 911, they would name that guilty party.

911 is the litmus test of who “they” are. Whoever is part of the system of control will not say who really did 911.

Whoever ignores 911, or says it doesn’t matter, are part of the matrix mind control grid. The SPLC, ADL, JDL and all Jewish organizations maintain the official storyline of 911, this proves that they are in on it, they are part of the authority structure.

Many Jewish organizations knew about 911 beforehand and failed to warn us, many of the senior staff at the SPLC and ADL were in on 911

This plethora of Jewish spy and control organizations employ disinformation specialists pretending to be patriots.

In a previous post, I discuss how Alex Jones refuses to name the real controllers. Just the other day on his radio broadcast he went through a list of euphemisms for names of the media whores.

He correctly derides the main stream media and he runs off 14 names except the actual one because it is Alex Jones job NOT to reveal who ‘they’ are.

Alex Jones is a disinformation specialist. He knows damn well the media is Jewish owned and controlled and refuses to say it. Alex Jones job is to insure that you never know who ‘they’ are and his refusal to name the enemy means that Alex Jones is no patriot.

“They”, the Jews, are those that control us. Once we see who controls, we can identify who they are, they are the ones you are not allowed to discuss publicly. They are the supremacist Jews who control the media.

They are networked around the world and are the ones pushing us toward a New World Order– a worldwide police prison state gulag run by International Jewry. The NWO is Jewish and that is a fact Jack.

I’ve edited the above info just a bit. (r. a. note)
