Growing Ties Between Saudis and Israelis Could Be an Ominous Sign of War

If you believe that this coming war is to protect Israel: I have a bungalow house on Jupiter I would like to sell you! It is about Albert Pike’s Satanic World War 3 plan!

  • Growing Ties Between Saudis and Israelis Could Be an Ominous Sign of War
    by * The Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff has given an historic interview with a Saudi newspaper.
    * In it, he promises that Israel is ready to share intelligence with Riyadh about Iran.
    * This news is the latest evidence that the Saudis are getting more prepared for a direct war with Tehran.

    The winds of war in the Middle East, specifically pitting Iran against Saudi Arabia, are turning into a full-blown sandstorm. And the latest evidence of this comes from a surprising source: An interview in a Saudi newspaper. 

    No, a relatively short interview in an Arabic-language paper in Riyadh isn’t usually a big deal. But it is when that interview is with the Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, Lt. General Gadi Eisenkot.

    The interview alone is big news, as it’s the first of its kind with an Israeli military official in the Saudi press. But it’s what Eisenkot said in the interview that really made history and made it clearer than ever that Saudi Arabia and Iran are marching ever closer to a direct confrontation. Here are the three Eisenkot quotes from Saudi Arabia’s Elaph newspaper that deserve the most attention:

Israeli Tank Fires at Syrian Military Post in Golan Heights

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Nov 19, 2017
    Israel has confirmed firing a tank shell at a Syrian army post on the Golan Heights, the second such incident in 24 hours. The Israeli army accused the Syrian side of violating the 1974 ceasefire agreement by conducting construction work in order to strengthen a military post. On Saturday, an Israeli tank also fired a shot, with the army issuing a similar statement. Saturday’s tank fire reportedly hit near the Syrian Druze village of Hader. Israel occupied part of the Syria’s Golan Heights in the Six-Day War of 1967. Tel Aviv later annexed the strategic territory in a move never recognized by the international community.

Israel Gives Official Confirmation Of Covert Ties With Saudi Arabia

  • Video above: House of Saud are Jews – Former Lebanese Minister Wiam Wahhab, Al-Jadid New TV Lebanon, 13 June 2008.
  • Israel Gives Official Confirmation Of Covert Ties With Saudi Arabia
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Yet more confirmation emerged today regarding the recently established relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia, which is being defined by a shared desire to see Iranian influence and expansion rolled back in the Middle East. For the first time a high level Israeli government official has formally acknowledged the increased ties between the two countries which have historically been bitter enemies, and which have never had official diplomatic relations. 

    The historic news, which is worrisome for the fact that it could bring the region closer to major war as the newfound “allies” eye the Iranian proxy Hezbollah, follows the leak of an Israeli diplomatic cable sent to all Israeli embassies throughout the world which revealed Israeli and Saudi behind the scenes coordination. The cable gave instructions to Israeli diplomats to express support for the Saudi war against Shia forces in Yemen and also urged embassies to aggressively lobby their host governments to take steps toward pushing Hezbollah out of Lebanon.

  • The House of Saud is, of course, Jewish. They pretend to be anti Jew/Israel to deceive their sheeple so as to continue governing. But they are Jews and the history is pretty well documented ! More proofs below article!
  • I have always wondered why the Saudi Arabia ruling class (House of Saud)never really supported the Palestinian cause. They pay lip service but never really put into action what they say. They are clearly pro-American and some would say in cahoots with Zionist Israel. Here are some possible answers.

    Is the Saudi Royal Family Jewish?
    ‘In the 1960’s the “Sawt Al Arab” Broadcasting Station in Cairo, Egypt, and the Yemen Broadcasting Station in Sana’a confirmed the Jewish Ancestry of the Saudi Family.

    King Faisal Al-Saud at that time could not deny his family’s kindred with the Jews when he declared to the Washington Post on Sept. 17, 1969 stating: “We, The Saudi family, are cousins of the Jews: we entirely disagree with any Arab or Muslem Authority which shows any antagonism to the Jews; but we must live together with them in peace. Our country (Arabia) is the Fountain head from where the first Jew sprang, and his descendants spread out all over the world.” That was the declaration of King Faisal AL-Saud Bin Abdul Aziz! ‘
  • Why is there the genealogy/descendents of Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Rahman ibn Faisal Al Saud in the Jewish Virtual Library? Draw your own conclusions!
  • 2002 Iraqi Intel Reported Wahhabis Are of Jewish Origin ! (emphasis mine)
    by David Livingstone, http://www.terrorism-illuminati.com/
    The U.S. Department of Defense has released translations of a number of Iraqi intelligence documents dating from Saddam’s rule. One, a General Military Intelligence Directorate report from September 2002, entitled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known as Salafis, in serving Western interests to undermine Islam.

    The report relies heavily on the Memoirs of Mr. Hempher, which describe in detail how a British spy to the Middle East, in the middle of the eighteenth century, made contact with Adbul Wahhab, to create a subversive version of Islam, the notorious sect of Wahhabism, which became the founding cult of the Saudi regime. The movement was temporarily suppressed by the Ottomam armies in the middle of the nineteenth century. But with the assistance of the British, the Wahhabis and their Saudi sponsors returned to power and founded their own state in 1932. Since then, the Saudis have collaborated closely with the Americans, to whom they owe their tremendous oil wealth, in funding various Islamic fundamentalist organizations and other American covert operations, particularly the “jihad” in Afghanistan. But the Saudis simulatenously use the immense wealth at their dispossal to disseminate this disruptive brand of Islam to various parts of the world, categorized by some of the largest propaganda campaign in history.

    Many who defend Wahhabism as a legitimate reform movement of Islam have tried to dismiss the Memoirs as a spurious fabrication. These include Bernard Haykel, Professor in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University, who, without providing any evidence, presumes the Memoirs to have been created by Ayyub Sabri Pasha.

    However, while the Memoirs only emerged in the 1970s, Pasha wrote his version of the story already in 1888. Ayyub Sabri Pasha was a well-known Ottoman writer and Turkish naval admiral, who served the Ottoman army in the Arabian Pensinsula, writing several works about the region and it’s history. Including The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism, where he recounts Abdul Wahhab’s association and plotting with Hempher.

    In addition to that revealed in the Hempher Memoirs, the Iraqi intelligence report also makes known some surprising claims, derived from works circulated in Arabic which have not been translated into English. As the report recounts, both Abdul Wahhab, and his sponsor, ibn Saud, who founded the Saudi dynasty, were of Jewish origin.

    For example, D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi’s followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati. The Donmeh community of Turkey were concentrated in the city of Salonika, which became a hotbed of Masonic activity, and from which the Young Turk movement evolved, which aided in the collapse of the Muslim empire of the Ottoman Turks. There is evidence that Ataturk himself, the founder of the modern Turkish state, was of Donmeh origin as well.

    Turan maintains that Abdul Wahhab’s grandfather, Sulayman was actually Shulman, having belonged to the Jewish community of Bursa in Turkey. From there he settled in Damascus, where he feigned Islam, but was apparently expelled for practicing sorcery. He then fled to Egypt and he again faced condemnation, so made his way he to the Hijaz, where he got married and fathered Abdul Wahhab. According to the report, the same is claimed in The Donmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahabis, Rifat Salim Kabar.

    The notion of the Saudi family being of Jewish heritage has been published by Mohammad Sakher, who, it is claimed, was ordered killed by the regime for his revelations. The report relates a similar account, but from different sources. According The Wahabi Movement/The Truth and Roots, by Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim Al-Shammari, for example, ibn Saud is actually descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Mushi, a Jewish merchant from Basra. Apparently, when he was approached by members from the Arabian tribe of Aniza, then claimed to be one of them, and traveled with them to Najd and his name became Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa.

    Additionally, Abdul Wahhab was descended from Wahib Al-Tamimi, so, as reported by al Said Nasir, in The History of the Saud Family, the Saudi ambassador in Cairo, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Mufaddal, paid Muhammad Al-Tamimi thirty five thousand Jinee in the year 1943, to forge a family tree of the Saudi family and that of Abdul Wahhab, and merge them into one, claiming their origin from the Prophet Mohammed.

    While it would be difficult to independantly authenticate these claims, they are interesting in light of the role that the state of Saudi Arabia has and continues to play with regards to supporting and advancing Western power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Especially astounding is the very dubious and virulent form of Islam, that Wahhabism and Salafism represent, which is currently wrecking havoc on Islamic traditions, and dividing the Muslim community in petty squabbles over trivial details, allowing the War on Islam to proceed effectively unchecked.
  • I have highlighted many times that modern Ashkenazi Khazarian Jews (about 90+% of modern Jewry) are not semitic and not the biological descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel. They are counterfeits!

Flashback: CNN’s Fake Translation of Iran President Rouhani’s Statement Regarding Holocaust!

MSM-In_the_news_today_some_more_shit we_made_up

  • CNN’s Fake Translation of Iran President Rouhani’s Statement Regarding Holocaust! 
    by Global Research News
    TEHRAN (FNA)- American news channel CNN fabricated the remarks made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in response to the network’s question about the Holocaust.

    The CNN aired its interview with Rouhani on Tuesday but the news channel added to or changed parts of his remarks when Christiane Amanpour asked him about the Holocaust.

    Here is the exact transcript of the Farsi text according to the CNN broadcast:

Iran President Rouhani's Statement to CNN

  • Here is the exact English translation of President Rouhani’s remarks:

    Rouhani’s: “I have said before that I am not a historian and historians should specify, state and explain the aspects of historical events, but generally we fully condemn any kind of crime committed against humanity throughout the history, including the crime committed by the Nazis both against the Jews and non-Jews, the same way that if today any crime is committed against any nation or any religion or any people or any belief, we condemn that crime and genocide. Therefore, what the Nazis did is condemned, (but) the aspects that you talk about, clarification of these aspects is a duty of the historians and researchers, I am not a history scholar.”

    And here is what the CNN translation says:

    CNN Question:
    “One of the things your predecessor (President Ahmadinejad) used to do from this very platform was deny(ing) the holocaust and pretend(ing) it was a myth, I want to know you, your position on the holocaust, do you accept what it was, and what was it?”

    CNN’s Translation:
    “I’ve said before that I am not a historian and then, when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust, it is the historians that should reflect on it. But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime that Nazis committed towards the Jews as well as non-Jews is reprehensible and condemnable. Whatever criminality they committed against the Jews, we condemn, the taking of human life is contemptible, it makes no difference whether that life is Jewish life, Christian or Muslim, for us it is the same, but taking the human life is something our religion rejects but this doesn’t mean that on the other hand you can say Nazis committed crime against a group now therefore, they must usurp the land of another group and occupy it. This too is an act that should be condemned. There should be an even-handed discussion“.

    FNA NOTE: The Red parts have been added or completely altered. The Yellow parts are the product of conceptual, and not precise, translation.

    Yet, the underlined parts are the worst parts of the fabrications which totally change what President Rouhani has said.

    After the CNN released the interview, hundreds of news agencies, TV and news channels, websites and weblogs broadcast this title: “Iran’s President Rouhani Calls Holocaust ‘Reprehensible’ Crime Against Jews”, a title quoted from the CNN; Or “Rouhani Recognizes the Holocaust as Crime against Jews”.

Arab League Holds Emergency Session: Iran And “Terrorist” Hezbollah Must Be Stopped

Pentagon: “Those damned Iranians! Let’s nuke them before they pee on us!”

  • Arab League Holds Emergency Session: Iran And “Terrorist” Hezbollah Must Be Stopped
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, in opening remarks to the Arab League today, declared that the kingdom “will not hesitate to defend its national security to keep its people safe” while requesting that joint action be taken to stop Iranian “aggression” and attacks on Arab states.

    Last weekend Saudi Arabia called an emergency session of the Arab League to address what it labeled “Iranian interference” after the bizarre series of events related to MBS’ aggressive internal purge, which included the detention of Lebanese ex-PM Hariri, left the kingdom in an unprecedented state of strife and uncertainty.  The destabilizing events were precipitated by a November 4 attack claimed by Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen, which the Saudis called a “violation” committed by Iran, though Iran denied that it had anything to do with the rare ballistic missile launch out of Yemen. 

    As many astute pundits have pointed out, it’s now “blame Iran time” according to the official Saudi (and allies) narrative of events in order to set the stage for public support for potential military action against Iran. Though it’s unlikely that the Gulf states would take direct military action against Hezbollah and Iran, there could be efforts underway to give political backing for an Israeli incursion into Lebanon.

Iran to ‘Wipe Israel Off The Map’? Read the 600 Words for Yourself to Confirm US/Israel CRIMINAL War Lies!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2006/jun/14/post155

Beware of all the lies and propaganda of the Zionist Illuminist western MSM !

  • Iran to ‘Wipe Israel off the map’? Read the 600 words for yourself to confirm US/Israel CRIMINAL war lies! 
    by Carl Herman, http://www.washingtonsblog.com/ 
    The origin of claims that Iranian President Ahmadinejad threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” is his October 30, 2005 speech. The crystal-clear content and context prove this claim is false, and that “leaders” threatening war on Iran over this speech are committing War Crimes. These War Crimes, in context of ongoing War Crimes in the Middle East, require immediate arrests of political and media “leaders” (video evidence below). US military are required by Oath and training to refuse all orders associated with unlawful wars, with officers required to arrest those who issue them.

    Speech transcript from the New York Times:
    “We need to examine the true origins of the issue of Palestine: is it a fight between a group of Muslims and non-Jews? Is it a fight between Judaism and other religions? Is it the fight of one country with another country? Is it the fight of one country with the Arab world? Is it a fight over the land of Palestine? I guess the answer to all these questions is ‘no.’

    … Let’s take a step back. We had a hostile regime in this country which was undemocratic, armed to the teeth and, with SAVAK, its security apparatus of SAVAK [the intelligence bureau of the Shah of Iran’s government; the Shah installed by US overthrow of Iran’s democracy in 1953 with SAVAK trained by US CIA killing thousands of Iranians seeking democracy] watched everyone. An environment of terror existed. When our dear Imam [Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Iranian revolution] said that the regime must be removed, many of those who claimed to be politically well-informed said it was not possible. All the corrupt governments were in support of the regime when Imam Khomeini started his movement. All the Western and Eastern countries supported the regime even after the massacre of September 7 [1978] and said the removal of the regime was not possible. But our people resisted and it is 27 years now that we have survived without a regime dependent on the United States. The tyranny of the East and the West over the world should have to end, but weak people who can see only what lies in front of them cannot believe this.

    Who would believe that one day we could witness the collapse of the Eastern Empire? But we could watch its fall in our lifetime. And it collapsed in a way that we have to refer to libraries because no trace of it is left. Imam [Khomeini] said Saddam must go and he said he would grow weaker than anyone could imagine. Now you see the man who spoke with such arrogance ten years ago that one would have thought he was immortal, is being tried in his own country in handcuffs and shackles by those who he believed supported him and with whose backing he committed his crimes.

    Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime must be wiped off the map and this was a very wise statement. We cannot compromise over the issue of Palestine. Is it possible to create a new front in the heart of an old front. This would be a defeat and whoever accepts the legitimacy of this regime [Israel] has in fact, signed the defeat of the Islamic world. Our dear Imam targeted the heart of the world oppressor in his struggle, meaning the occupying regime. I have no doubt that the new wave that has started in Palestine, and we witness it in the Islamic world too, will eliminate this disgraceful stain from the Islamic world. But we must be aware of tricks [by Israel on Palestine].

    … Recently they [the Israelis] tried a new trick. They want to show the evacuation from the Gaza strip, which was imposed on them by Palestinians, as a final victory for the Palestinians and end the issue of Palestine with the excuse of establishing a Palestinian government next to themselves. Today, they want to involve Palestinians with mischief and trick them into fighting with one another over political positions so that they would drop the issue of Palestine.

    … The issue of Palestine is not over at all. It will be over the day a Palestinian government, which belongs to the Palestinian people, comes to power; the day that all refugees return to their homes; a democratic government elected by the people comes to power.
     Of course those who have come from far away to plunder this land have no right to choose for this nation.”

    The speech’s content and context is changing undemocratic and violent regimes, with no more threat to Israel’s public than to Iran’s public under the Shah.


    Importantly, we can get greater clarity by reviewing crucial history of US and Israel lies and War Crimes on Iran and Palestine:

Flashback: Experts Confirm That Iran’s President Ahmadinejad Did Not Call For Israel To be ‘Wiped Off The Map’!

Be careful of all the lies and propaganda of the Zionist Illuminist western MSM !

  • This is pure, mad Zionist propaganda! Keep in mind that the majority of the western media is owned and controlled by the Illuminati ruling class. The Illuminists are manipulating the Jewish/Christian sheeple to hate and kill Iranian/Muslims sheeple and vice versa. This is all part of their Satanic World War 3 Plan! . Unfortunately, the sheeple are easily deceived by their Illuminist masters! All scams are based on deception and mis-direction.
  • The Guardian UK reports :
    Experts confirm that Iran’s president did not call for Israel to be ‘wiped off the map’. Reports that he did serve to strengthen western hawks.

    My recent comment piece explaining how Iran’s president was badly misquoted when he allegedly called for Israel to be “wiped off the map” has caused a welcome little storm. The phrase has been seized on by western and Israeli hawks to re-double suspicions of the Iranian government’s intentions, so it is important to get the truth of what he really said.

    I took my translation – “the regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time” – from the indefatigable Professor Juan Cole’s website where it has been for several weeks.

    But it seems to be mainly thanks to the Guardian giving it prominence that the New York Times, which was one of the first papers to misquote Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, came out on Sunday with a defensive piece attempting to justify its reporter’s original “wiped off the map” translation. (By the way, for Farsi speakers the original version is available here.)

    Joining the “off the map” crowd is David Aaronovitch, a columnist on the Times (of London), who attacked my analysis yesterday. I won’t waste time on him since his knowledge of Farsi is as minimal as that of his Latin. The poor man thinks the plural of casus belli is casi belli, unaware that casus is fourth declension with the plural casus (long u).

    The New York Times’s Ethan Bronner and Nazila Fathi, one of the paper’s Tehran staff, make a more serious case. They consulted several sources in Tehran. “Sohrab Mahdavi, one of Iran’s most prominent translators, and Siamak Namazi, managing director of a Tehran consulting firm, who is bilingual, both say ‘wipe off’ or ‘wipe away’ is more accurate than ‘vanish’ because the Persian verb is active and transitive,” Bronner writes.

    The New York Times goes on: “The second translation issue concerns the word ‘map’. Khomeini’s words were abstract: ‘Sahneh roozgar.’ Sahneh means scene or stage, and roozgar means time. The phrase was widely interpreted as ‘map’, and for years, no one objected. In October, when Mr Ahmadinejad quoted Khomeini, he actually misquoted him, saying not ‘Sahneh roozgar’ but ‘Safheh roozgar’, meaning pages of time or history. No one noticed the change, and news agencies used the word ‘map’ again.”

    This, in my view, is the crucial point and I’m glad the NYT accepts that the word “map” was not used by Ahmadinejad. (By the way, the Wikipedia entry on the controversy gets the NYT wrong, claiming falsely that Ethan Bronner “concluded that Ahmadinejad had in fact said that Israel was to be wiped off the map”.)

    If the Iranian president made a mistake and used “safheh” rather than “sahneh”, that is of little moment. A native English speaker could equally confuse “stage of history” with “page of history”. The significant issue is that both phrases refer to time rather than place. As I wrote in my original post, the Iranian president was expressing a vague wish for the future. He was not threatening an Iranian-initiated war to remove Israeli control over Jerusalem.

    Two other well-established translation sources confirm that Ahmadinejad was referring to time, not place. The version of the October 26 2005 speech put out by the Middle East Media Research Institute, based on the Farsi text released by the official Iranian Students News Agency, says: “This regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history.” (NB: not “wiped”. I accept that “eliminated” is almost the same, indeed some might argue it is more sinister than “wiped”, though it is a bit more of a mouthful if you are trying to find four catchy and easily memorable words with which to incite anger against Iran.)

    MEMRI (its text of the speech is available here) is headed by a former Isareli military intelligence officer and has sometimes been attacked for alleged distortion of Farsi and Arabic quotations for the benefit of Israeli foreign policy. On this occasion they supported the doveish view of what Ahmadinejad said.

    Finally we come to the BBC monitoring service which every day puts out hundreds of highly respected English translations of broadcasts from all round the globe to their subscribers – mainly governments, intelligence services, thinktanks and other specialists. I approached them this week about the controversy and a spokesperson for the monitoring service’s marketing unit, who did not want his name used, told me their original version of the Ahmadinejad quote was “eliminated from the map of the world”.

    As a result of my inquiry and the controversy generated, they had gone back to the native Farsi-speakers who had translated the speech from a voice recording made available by Iranian TV on October 29 2005. Here is what the spokesman told me about the “off the map” section: “The monitor has checked again. It’s a difficult expression to translate. They’re under time pressure to produce a translation quickly and they were searching for the right phrase. With more time to reflect they would say the translation should be “eliminated from the page of history”.

    Would the BBC put out a correction, given that the issue had become so controversial, I asked. “It would be a long time after the original version”, came the reply. I interpret that as “probably not”, but let’s see.

    Finally, I approached Iradj Bagherzade, the Iranian-born founder and chairman of the renowned publishing house, IB Tauris. He thought hard about the word “roozgar”. “History” was not the right word, he said, but he could not decide between several better alternatives “this day and age”, “these times”, “our times”, “time”.

    So there we have it. Starting with Juan Cole, and going via the New York Times’ experts through MEMRI to the BBC’s monitors, the consensus is that Ahmadinejad did not talk about any maps. He was, as I insisted in my original piece, offering a vague wish for the future.

    A very last point. The fact that he compared his desired option – the elimination of “the regime occupying Jerusalem” – with the fall of the Shah’s regime in Iran makes it crystal clear that he is talking about regime change, not the end of Israel. As a schoolboy opponent of the Shah in the 1970’s he surely did not favour Iran’s removal from the page of time. He just wanted the Shah out.

    The same with regard to Israel. The Iranian president is undeniably an opponent of Zionism or, if you prefer the phrase, the Zionist regime. But so are substantial numbers of Israeli citizens, Jews as well as Arabs. The anti-Zionist and non-Zionist traditions in Israel are not insignificant. So we should not demonise Ahmadinejad on those grounds alone.

    Does this quibbling over phrases matter? Yes, of course. Within days of the Ahmadinejad speech the then Israeli prime minister, Ariel Sharon, was calling for Iran to be expelled from the United Nations. Other foreign leaders have quoted the map phrase. The United States is piling pressure on its allies to be tough with Iran.

Palestinian FM: We Won’t Give in to “Extortion” by America in Support of War Criminal Israel

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Nov 18, 2017
    Palestinians have rejected U-S threat of closing their diplomatic mission in Washington, saying they will not give in to any extortion or pressure. Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki said the Palestinians are waiting for further communication from the U-S government. Earlier in the day, the U-S threatened to shutter Palestinians’ office in Washington if they push ahead with their bid to take Israeli crimes to the International Criminal Court. An official in President Donald Trump’s administration said the office for the Palestinian Authority can remain open if the Palestinians engage in serious talks with the Israelis. During his address to the U-N General Assembly meeting in September, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the I-C-C to prosecute Israeli officials. He slammed Tel Aviv for its ongoing settlement constructions and aggressions against the Palestinian people.

Saudi-Iran Proxy War May Push Lebanon Back into Civil Strive

  • RT Published on Nov 18, 2017
    Saudi Arabia and Iran are two regional powers that have long been competing for influence. Lebanon’s president claimed that Riyadh may have forced the prime minister to resign because it felt he hadn’t done enough to stand up to Hezbollah. The group is backed by Iran, and is an influential political force in Lebanon. RT’s Eisa Ali looks at the reason why many fear that the country could return to civil war.

Saudi Arabia Wants to Kill the Petrodollar – Economist

  • Saudi Arabia Wants to Kill the Petrodollar – Economist
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The United States and Saudi Arabia are so interdependent that a rift would mean disaster for the petrodollar system and the greenback’s reserve currency status, warns economist Brandon Smith. He is sure Riyadh is planning to ditch the dollar.

    “I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been the symbiosis between the US and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been the single most important key to the dollar remaining as the petrocurrency from the very beginning,” 
    Smith wrote in an article for his website Alt-market.com.


    The site claims its goal is to “facilitate barter networking and the exchange of knowledge and ideas for thriving in a faltering monetary environment.”

    According to the economist, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has been seeking ways of cutting dependence on the US dollar. Smith says the country’s Vision 2030 program may be not about reducing oil’s share in the economy, but killing the petrodollar.

    “Prince Mohammed’s revolutionary “Vision for 2030” developed as he entered power was touted as a means to end Saudi reliance on oil revenues to support economic stability. However, I believe this plan is NOT about ending reliance on oil, but ending reliance on the US dollar. In fact, the plan indicates a move away from the dollar as the world’s petrocurrency and a de-pegging of the riyal from the dollar,”
     he wrote.


    A 1974 agreement between US President Richard Nixon and Saudi King Faisal meant Riyadh has been accepting dollars for all its oil exports.

    “Prince Mohammed has also established much deeper ties to Russia and China, creating bilateral agreements which may end up removing the dollar as the mechanism for oil trade between the nations,”
     Smith added.

Timing the Collapse: Ron Paul Says Watch the Petrodollar

  • Timing the Collapse: Ron Paul Says Watch the Petrodollar
    by Nick Giambruno, Senior Editor, http://www.internationalman.com/
    “The chaos that one day will ensue from our 35-year experiment with worldwide fiat money will require a return to money of real value. We will know that day is approaching when oil-producing countries demand gold, or its equivalent, for their oil rather than dollars or euros. The sooner the better.” (emphasis mine)
    ~ Ron Paul

    What Ron Paul is referring to here is the petrodollar system. It’s one of the main pillars that’s been holding up the US dollar’s status as the world’s premier reserve currency since the breakdown of Bretton Woods.

    Paul is essentially saying that, if we want to better understand the answer to the elusive question of “When will the fiat US dollar collapse?“, we have to watch the petrodollar system and the factors affecting it.

    At the recent Casey Research Summit, I had the chance to speak extensively with Dr. Paul on this subject, and he told me that he stands by his assessment. I believe this is critically important, because once the dollar loses this coveted status, the window of opportunity to take preventative action will definitively shut for Americans.

    At that moment, I believe the US government will become sufficiently desperate and implement the destructive measures that governments throughout the world and throughout history have all taken (overt capital controls, wealth confiscations, people controls, price and wage controls, pension nationalizations, etc.)

    But it’s not just the financial implications that need to be considered. The destruction of the dollar is going to wipe out the wealth of a lot people, and that will cause political and social consequences that will likely be worse than the financial consequences. The three points to understand here are:

Saudi Arabia And Iran are Jostling for Control Over the Middle East – And It Could Turn into All-Out War

  • The entire situation and coming Greater Middle East war is orchestrated by US-Pentagram. Saudi Arabia is not the puppet master. Saudi Arabia and Zionist ‘666’ Israel (the Satanic counterfeit) are following the instructions of the western Illuminati, the Synagogue of Satan.
  • Saudi Arabia and Iran are jostling for control over the Middle East – and it could turn into all-out war
    by Paddy Ashdown, http://www.independent.co.uk/
    The only way we can prevent global consequences from a regional conflict between Riyadh and Tehran is if we begin treating their countries the same.

    There used to saying in the Middle East: “If a dog barks in the Middle East, British intelligence is behind it.” Replace the word “British” with “American”, and we think that’s still true.

    But it isn’t. There were many casualties in the wars of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria. One of them was the myth of Western omnipotence. The greatest threat to world peace coming out of the Middle East now is not terrorism, but the danger of a wider Sunni-Shia religious conflict into which the great powers are dragged.

    The radicalisation of Sunni Islam, funded from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf elements, is not any longer targeted on us in the West. Its target has changed from the Great Satan in Washington, DC to the Great Heretic in Tehran. The attacks on our cities are not the real war, but collateral damage in a wider conflict.

    This is not to diminish the threat to us here in London, or to suggest that we should not have been taking this seriously. The collateral dead are no less dead – as the innocents of Yemen, Iraq and Syria know so miserably well.

    The casualties of the bombing outrages in Western cities, and the maimed and injured from the indiscriminate bombing of crowded Sanaa suburbs, are victims of the same war: the struggle between Sunni and Shia, which now stands on the edge of open conflict.

    This is not really about religion, any more than the wars of religion of the 17th century, or the conflict in Northern Ireland, or the bloodshed in Bosnia. In almost all great so-called religious conflicts, what lies behind the shouting of the clerics is a contest between the power of nations. This one is, in reality, a contest for dominance in the Middle East between Riyadh and Tehran.
