Video: Former General Says Russia Will Not Allow Israel-U.S. Attack On Iran And Syria!

  • Video: Former General Says Russia Will Not Allow Israel-U.S. Attack On Iran and Syria 
    by Kurt Nimmo, 
    The Middle East Media Research Institute, an Israel-centric propaganda outfit run by a former colonel in Israeli intelligence, has posted a video and transcript of an interview with retired Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov, a former member of the Russian Joint Chiefs of Staff. The interview aired on Russia Today on February 1, 2012, according to MEMRI.

    During the interview, Ivashov said scheduled military exercises by Russia will be used to demonstrate that it is opposed to military operations by Israel and the United States against Iran and Syria. Ivashov said both countries are “guaranteed partners of Russia” and attacks against them would be unacceptable.

    “A strike against Syria or Iran is an indirect strike against Russia and its interests. Russia would lose important positions and allies in the Arab world. Therefore, by defending Syria, Russia is defending its own interests,” he said. Ivashov said what the United States and NATO did in Libya is “nearly identical” to what Hitler and the Nazis did in Poland and Russia. He said Russia is protecting the world from fascism.

    It is not clear what military exercise Ivashov was referring to during the interview. According to RIA Novosti, the Russian state owned news agency, Russia and India Monday started preparations for the joint INDRA-2012 military exercises scheduled to be held in Russia this summer. India and Russia have conducted five of the INDRA-series joint ground and naval exercises since 2003.

Israel Tries To Drag US into Iran War!

“ … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Spiegel: It’s Time To End The Greek Rescue Farce!

  • Rescue? What rescue? It does not look like any kind of rescue to me. Would any bank lend you money when you are bankrupt, unable to pay and out of work? But yet the Illuminist banksters want us to believe that they are the saviors: “We are here to bailout “save” the Greeks!” Yeah right, pigs can fly!
  • This is about saving Illuminist banks. This is about buying up the whole of Greece in pennies to the dollar. This is about using the bailout monies to pay for more weapons from France, Germany and America. Weapons which Greece do not need. The entire bill is shoved down the throat of the sheeple and their children, grand children ….. forever.

    It’s Time To End the Greek Rescue Farce! 
    By Stefan Kaiser, 
    Whether it be an escrow account or a budget commissioner, the latest demands by Germany show just how absurd negotiations over Greece’s future have become. It is high time to bring an end to this tragicomedy.

    For the past two years, Greece has wrangled with the euro-zone states and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over its so-called “rescue.” Austerity measures have been agreed to, aid has been paid and private creditors have been forced to accept “voluntary” debt haircuts. Despite all this, Greece is in even worse shape today than it was then. Its economy is shrinking, the debt ratio is rising and the country and its banks have been cut off from capital markets. There isn’t even the slightest sign that the situation might improve. Something has gone very wrong with this rescue.

    But none of the protagonists seem to have grasped this. They continue to negotiate as if things are business as usual, they let one “final ultimatum” after the other pass and they persistently fail to realize that their discussions have started to verge on the absurd. It would be a lot better to end this farce.

    For weeks now, the Greek government has been negotiating with private creditors and the troika comprised of the IMF, European Union and European Central Bank (ECB) over a second bailout package. But it is already clear that this aid package will not save the country. It appears it will only delay a Greek insolvency — and it will serve to create new hardships for the country’s population.

    It is time for politicians to admit that their carrot and stick strategy has failed. The idea that the country can be freed from its debt quagmire though austerity programs and aid pledges tied to conditions just isn’t going to work. It won’t even work if private creditors forgive part of the country’s debt.

    Broken Promises
    For months, Greek government politicians as well as the so-called rescuers in Berlin, Paris and Brussels have all been deceiving themselves. Each supposedly final rescue package is followed by yet another, and austerity pledges aren’t being adhered to.

    That has a lot to do with domestic political considerations. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy must convey to their voters that they have the situation and, especially the Greeks, under control. Meanwhile, the government in Athens must, out of self-preservation, limit the burdens to its own people as much as possible.

    That’s why both sides repeatedly agree to promises that everyone knows they will not be able to keep. The current rescue package, for example, officially agreed at the euro summit at the end of October, already has to be improved because it has become too small.

    The Greek economy is shrinking faster than assumed. And the austerity plan Greece approved last summer under pressure from its euro-zone partners is also failing to live up to expectations. That’s no wonder, either, because €50 billion of the €78 billion in total savings pledged was tied to proceeds from privatizations that, not surprisingly, have failed to generate the profits expected.

Brookings: ‘Horrific Provocation’ and ‘Tehran-Sponsored 9/11′ Needed to Trigger Iran Invasion!

  • Alot of so-called think tanks are Illuminist owned. They are employed to study and work out long-term strategy/plan to implement the Luciferian New World Order. Keep in mind the statement by the PNAC (Project for a New American Century) before the 9/11 false flag attack, calling for a new Pearl Harbor event:

    “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”
    Page 63 Rebuilding America’s Defenses, September 2000, Project for a New American Century 
  • The Illuminists are laying the groundwork for another false flag (nuclear?) attack on America (American soil?). They want to place the blame on Iran and the Muslim people to start off their Satanic World War 3. It is the blasphemous reality of the mentally ill – Satanism! Do not be deceived.

    Brookings: ‘Horrific Provocation’ and ‘Tehran-Sponsored 9/11′ Needed to Trigger Iran Invasion 
    by Jurriaan Maessen, 
    In a 2009 policy paper,published by the influential Brookings Institute, the authors propose almost anything to guarantee dominance of Persia, including such measures as bribery, lying, cheating and mass murdering in the shape of an all-out military assault on Iran. The paper ‘Which path to Persia: Options for a New American Strategy toward Iran’ is just one of many recent and not so recent examples of an unwavering resolve by the Anglo-American establishment to engage Iran militarily and acquire its natural resources at the same time.

    The group of authors — a cozy little convergence of globalists — contemplate four separate options on ‘how to deal with Iran’ in the cold bureaucratic language that poses as scientific but really amounts to little more than the intelligent musings of a calculating psychopath. The first option, ‘Dissuading Tehran’ through diplomatic means is being discussed as something tried, tested and discarded into the trashcan of history. The second option, ‘Disarming Tehran’ covers several ways of rallying the ‘international community’ around the globalists’ intentions. In the third part, ‘Toppling Tehran’ the warmongering increases as the writers contemplate both covert and overt military action against the Islamic republic of Iran. In the fourth and last section, ‘Deterring Tehran’ the option of ‘containment’ is elaborated upon. The proposed final strategy predictably involves all of the above mentioned options, in roughly the same order of appearance.

    To ensure the cooperation of surrounding countries, the authors propose bribery as an effective tool. After the authors assert that ‘it may be necessary to cut some deals in order to secure Moscow’s support for a tougher Iran policy’, the authors continue with their ‘brainstorming’, advising a widespread bribery campaign in order to ensure international cooperation in regards to Iran:

    Other countries also will want payoffs from the United States in return for their assistance on Iran. Such deals may be distasteful, but many will be unavoidable if the Persuasion approach is to have a reasonable chance of succeeding.’ And further on: ‘To be successful, a Persuasion approach would invariably require unpleasant compromises with third-party countries to secure their cooperation against Iran.’

    This means the US will have to cut all kinds of deals with dictators, bloodthirsty local tyrants and other corrupt kings of Arabia- even facilitating them with weapons. Besides rallying the ‘international community’ around the Anglo-American establishment with the help of these ‘unpleasant compromises’, the paper stresses it will also be necessary to persuade the Iranians themselves to topple their government (page 39):

    Inciting regime change in Iran would be greatly assisted by convincing the Iranian people that their government is so ideologically blinkered that it refuses to do what is best for the people and instead clings to a policy that could only bring ruin on the country.’

    But the authors underline the necessity of creating a favorable climate for the transnationalists in which to operate.

The BBC Censors Its Own Report on Tunisia’s Jews Saying “No” To Israel !

Click on image to goto audio file.

  • Zionism is an Illuminist construct. Zionist ‘666’ Israel is a Satanic counterfeit. Modern Ashkenazi Jews (90+% of modern Jewry) are not the Jews of the Bible. They are not even semitic. The Christian sheeple, in particular American Christians, are greatly deceived by this Illuminist construct.
  • The western MSM is largely owned by Zionists-Illuminists. They have been conducting a psyop against Christians using Zionist ‘666’ Israel. It is about propagating myths about this Satanic state and always putting it in a positive light. It is about fomenting fear and hate against the Muslim people to setup the coming Satanic World War 3. God does not teach me to hate and kill Muslims, Jews or anybody. But to love them.
  • The Satanic plan is to use Zionist ‘666’ Israel to destroy the Muslim world and in the process, the Satanic counterfeit will be destroyed. Yes, you have to be crazy to want to stay in this neo Nazi, war mongering, genocidal state!

    The BBC censors its own report on Tunisia’s Jews saying “No” to Israel ! 
    By Alan Hart, 
    Alan Hart views an instance where, as a result either of pro-Zionist bias, Israeli pressure or cowardice, BBC television censored a report by one of its own correspondents, originally broadcast on BBC World Service radio, cutting out from an audio clip a passage in which a Tunisian Jew stated that it would be crazy of him to emigrate to Israel.

    There was a moment in a report from Tunisia by the BBC’s Wyre Davies when I could not stop myself laughing. I was listening to it on the Corporation’s generally excellent World Service radio. (In my view this particular BBC service is generally excellent because, unlike all other BBC news and current affairs outlets, radio and TV, it often reflects some of the truth about what is happening in and over Palestine that became Israel.)

    “Go to Israel? I’m not crazy!”

    Davies was in Tunisia to find out how its remaining 2,000 Jews (down from 300,000 once upon a time) were responding to a call from an Israeli government minister for them to move to Israel. The case the minister made was, apparently, that their security and wellbeing were no longer guaranteed in an Arab country with an Islamist government in place of what Davies called a “sectarian dictatorship”. In other words, Tunisia’s Jews were in danger and would be safe in Israel. (My guess is that the greatest concern of the Israeli minister and his colleagues was less the fate of Jews in Tunisia and more the need for Jews from anywhere to go to Israel to help defuse the ticking demographic time-bomb of occupation.)

    The story as told by Davies for the BBC’s World Service radio was honest reporting at its best. Its explicit message was that Tunisia’s Jews have rejected the Israeli call. One of those interviewed by Davies said to him and a listening world: “No one here is afraid.”

    Another said, “Go to Israel? I’m not crazy!”

    That’s what made me laugh. A subsequent development wiped the smile from my face. A friend in Italy sent me a web link for the television version of the Davies report from Tunisia. I opened the link to check that it was the same report I’d heard on the World Service radio. It started in exactly the same way so I assumed it was, and I tweeted it as “MUST WATCH: Tunisia’s Jews reject [Israel’s] call to leave”.

    Bias or censorship?
    An hour or so later I made the time to view the complete television version. The Jewish gentleman who said, “Go to Israel? I’m not crazy!” had been edited out.
    On past BBC form there are four possible explanations.

    1. Driven by a personal commitment to Zionism and support for its monster child right or wrong, a senior BBC executive ordered the quote to be dropped on his own initiative.

    2. Senior BBC executive received a telephone call from the Israeli embassy in London, or possibly the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, telling him or her that Israel would not be pleased if the BBC gave more air time to a Tunisian Jew who was saying “No” to Israel in a way that suggested he had some contempt for the Zionist state and thought that many Israelis were crazy.

    3. A senior BBC executive anticipated that giving the Jewish gentleman in Tunisia a wider audience would provoke Zionism’s wrath and decided (as BBC excutives often do) that it was better for the Corporation to censor itself than provoke that wrath.

    4. For reasons of limited space in a television news bulletin, the report for the World Service radio had to be edited, shortened.

    I have to say that I consider the fourth possible explanation as summarized above to be the least likely one. Why? There are many very good journalists in the BBC and they know as well as I do that the single most revealing and therefore newsworthy statement in the original Davies report was that of the Jewish gentleman who said, “Go to Israel? I’m not crazy!”

An Orderly EMU Break-Up, à la Française?

  • How long will this last before the plug is pulled on the Eurozone? It is anybody’s guess. But I doubt the thing can last beyond 2012.

    An orderly EMU break-up, à la Française 
    By , 
    Salut souverainistes. For those wanting more details on the euro break-up plan drafted by French economists, here is the link to the L’Observatoire de L’Europe website.

    A few extracts, loosely translated: “The obstinate determination of governments to take us by forced march deeper into the euro impasse can only lead to the general aggravation of the economic situation in Europe.”

    “Even though our American and Chinese competitors have an interest in the survival of the single currency, the euro is condemned to an uncontrollable explosion sooner or late”. (A nice twist that one, inverting the false and widely believed conspiracy theory that the US is trying to destroy the euro.)

    “National currencies should be recreated in each eurozone country”. There will be a short transition period of dual notes as old euros are stamped by country (‘U’ for France) until new francs etc are printed. (This is what happened when the Austro-Hungarian monetary union fell apart in 1919.)

    The new exchange rates will be determined by a formula that takes into account the accumulated inflation differential and trade balances since the launch of EMU. The devaluations/revaluations will be set against a new unit of account reflecting the average weighting of the old euro (not anchored on the new D-Mark).

Citigroup: Risk of Greek Exit From Euro Has Risen To 50%!

RIP: Rest In Pieces

  • There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt. – John Adams, 1826
  • The political charade is getting a bit long and annoying. Weren’t the politician snakes supposed to have an agreement on the next Greek bailout many moons ago? Every other day, the Illuminist financial MSM has been touting an agreement any day now. Well, where is it?
  • Greece should default. The Greeks should not be made to pay odious and fraudulent debts amassed by their banks and Illuminist politicians. The so-called 2nd bailout (or is it 3rd) has nothing to do with saving Greece. It is the financial rape of the Greeks by Illuminist banksters! It is the destruction of Greek sovereignty. It is conquest via debt. You cannot solve a debt problem with even more debts.

    Citigroup: Risk of Greek Exit From Euro Has Risen to 50%! 
    By Matina Stevis,
    Citigroup on Monday raised its estimate of the likelihood of a Greek exit from the euro area over the next 18 months to 50% from a prior range of 25% to 30%, according to the bank’s latest “Global Economics View” analysis by economists Willem Buiter and Ebrahim Rahbari.

    “This is mostly because we consider the willingness of [euro area] creditors to continue providing further support to Greece despite Greek non-compliance with programme conditionality to have fallen substantially,” the report writes.

    Buiter and Rahbari believe the cost of Greece leaving the 17-nation currency bloc would be “moderate” because policy makers would act to protect other weak euro-zone economies from further contagion following the unprecedented exit.

    They also expect that Greece’s long-negotiated private-debt restructuring will be done in an orderly, albeit coerced, manner. They also believe the European Central Bank will end up restructuring its holdings of Greek bonds, a proposal that has proved very controversial over the last few weeks.

    “We think that the Greek government will achieve an orderly but most likely coercive debt restructuring in its current negotiations with private creditors about private sector involvement and with the [European Union, ECB and International Monetary Fund] on ECB involvement,” the economists wrote.

    “Greece is therefore likely to avoid disorderly default when its next bond redemption is due (which is on March 20, but a seven-day grace period applies),” Buiter and Rahbari added, pointing out that in order for Greece to receive a second bailout from euro-area countries and the IMF, it will have to “a minimum degree of compliance with the fiscal and structural conditions of the bail-out programme. Alternatively, it could choose to temporarily cede authority over certain budgetary decisions to EU/EA representatives.”
