Saudi Escalation: Lebanon And Yemen In The Crosshairs

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live 10 hours ago
    Today the Saudi government ordered all Saudis out of Lebanon, as “resigned” Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri is said to be under house arrest in Saudi Arabia. Simultaneously, the Saudi Crown Prince is increasing pressure against Iran, blaming the country for supplying a missile to Yemen that targeted the airport in Riyadh. War coming?

Kuwait, UAE And Bahrain Urge Citizens to Leave Lebanon Immediately

  • Kuwait And Bahrain Urge Citizens to Leave Lebanon Immediately
    by https://southfront.org/
    Following Saudi Arabia’s decision to order its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately, Kuwait’s Foreign Ministry made a similar announcement.

    The Kuwait News Agency quoted the foreign ministry’s statement saying that the move “contributed the step to circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative imapct that might take place.”

    The statement also urged citizens to avoid traveling to Lebanon. A similar decision was made by Bahrain. The country’s foreign ministry added that its citizens were banned from traveling to Lebanon, as well.

    This might be another sign of the upcoming conflict between Hezbollah and Israel, which would likely be backed up by the Saudi-led block.
  • Saudi, UAE, Kuwait urge citizens to leave Lebanon
    by http://www.aljazeera.com/
    Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait have advised their citizens not to travel to Lebanon and urged those who are in the country to leave as soon as possible.

    Saudi Arabia’s official news agency SPA quoted a source in the foreign ministry on Thursday as saying: “Due to the situations in the Republic of Lebanon, the official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.

    “The Kingdom advised all citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations.”

    Only hours later, Kuwait and the UAE also urged its nationals to leave Lebanon immediately. Bahrain – an ally of Saudi Arabia – had already ordered its citizens to leave Lebanon on Sunday, with the Bahraini foreign ministry issuing a travel advisory that cited “safety considerations”.

    Leave of absence
    Lebanon has been on edge after the sudden resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, who announced his departure while on a visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday. His whereabouts have since been unknown. However, officials told Al Jazeera on Thursday that Hariri may be under house arrest or temporarily detained in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens to Leave Lebanon

  • Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens to Leave Lebanon
    by AP, via https://www.timesofisrael.com/
    As tensions between their two governments mount, Hezbollah calls on Saudis to stay out of Lebanese affairs.

    BEIRUT — Saudi Arabia ordered its citizens out of Lebanon Thursday amid skyrocketing tensions between their two governments. A brief statement carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency called on all Saudis living in or visiting Lebanon to depart, and warned against travel to the country.

    In an escalating war of words, Hezbollah called on Saudi Arabia to stay out of Lebanese affairs, saying the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, announced from Riyadh over the weekend, “has raised many questions.”

    In a statement, the Hezbollah parliamentary bloc said Saudi Arabia was mired in crisis after the failure of its two and half-year military intervention in Yemen, which has led to a military stalemate.

    Hariri shocked his country Saturday when he announced in a televised statement out of Saudi Arabia that he was resigning. He has not been seen in Lebanon since. He said his country had been taken hostage by the terrorist group Hezbollah, a partner in his coalition government and a major foe of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia says it considers Hezbollah’s participation in the Lebanese government an “act of war” against the kingdom.

    Lebanese President Michel Aoun has said he will not consider the premier’s resignation until the two meet in person.

    Saudi Arabia has demanded that Hezbollah, a powerful Iran-backed group, play no role in Lebanon’s government. The Shiite group has been represented in Lebanon’s parliament since 1992 and is a key member of the coalition government. Its armed wing is more powerful than Lebanon’s army, and its fighters battle alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in Syria.

    Saudi Arabia ordered all of its citizens to leave Lebanon on Thursday, amid growing tensions among the power players in the Middle East. RT America’s Anya Parampil asks Vijay Prashad, director of international studies at Trinity College, whether the move represents an escalation in the crisis or if the stakes are too high for this to be seen as a provocative act.

‘Like Magic’: Scientists Find Way to Make Old Human Cells Young Again

  • ‘Like Magic’: Scientists Find Way to Make Old Human Cells Young Again
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Scientists have discovered how to make old human cells young again through rejuvenation. It’s an exciting discovery that could change the way humans age.

    Researchers at the University of Exeter and University of Brighton found they could rejuvenate senescent cells, cells that had stopped their natural growth cycle,causing them to start to divide again. The experiment found they not only look younger, but also behave like younger cells.

    “When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it. These old cells were looking like young cells. It was like magic,”
     researcher Dr. Eva Latorre said“I repeated the experiments several times and in each case the cells rejuvenated. I am very excited by the implications and potential for this research.


    The research builds on earlier findings that showed ‘splicing factor’ genes switch off as humans age. Scientists found a way to restart the splicing through chemicals.

    According to the researchers, this could change the way we age, with the hope that humans will experience less of the degeneration that comes with aging. Older people are more likely to have strokes, heart disease and other illnesses, but with cell rejuvenation, this could be decreased.

    This demonstrates that when you treat old cells with molecules that restore the levels of the splicing factors, the cells regain some features of youth,” team leader Professor Lorna Harries said.  They are able to grow, and their telomeres – the caps on the ends of the chromosomes that shorten as we age –  are now longer, as they are in young cells. Far more research is needed now, to establish the true potential for these sort [sic] of approaches to address the degenerative effects of ageing. ”

A Totalitarian Europe Now on Our Doorstep

Revelation 17:3~6, .. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.(a) 5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.

  • Emphasis mine:
  • A Totalitarian Europe Now on Our Doorstep
    by Julian Rose, https://www.activistpost.com/
    Quietly, without most people noticing, the European Commission is moving ahead with a strategy that will arguably make the EU into the first fully operational model of a centralised ‘one state’ supranational authority:  ‘A New World Order’;  the longstanding neoconservative ambition which lies at the heart of global secret society agendas and US geopolitical hegemony.

    The key ingredient of this strategy is the establishment of an ‘EU Treasury’ which, according to Donald Tusk, President of the EU Council, will come into effect in June 2018, under the official title: European Monetary Fund. This will result in the single point control of all EU member state  finances.

    The plan will involve a further leveraging of the power of the major banks, to consolidate their controlling influence over EU affairs.  By combining an ‘EU Treasury’ and a consolidation of banking power, a major step will be taken in the ‘amalgamation of everything’ heist; to be brought under the single umbrella of a Totalitarian Super State. We are talking about individual country’s monetary policies; the military; police forces and intelligence services all being run from a central control unit in Brussels. These will be followed by more of the same – covering almost all areas of administrative control, that were once the domain of individual countries.

    The institution at the forefront of this power grab is the Bank for International Settlements, based in  Basel, Switzerland, which has global outreach and acts as a funnel for the acquisition and distribution of vast sums of globally fluid international money.

    The Bank of International Settlements was established by approximately eight thousand hedge fund managers with a common ambition to rule the world. The majority are Luciferians working with what, in another essay, I have called ‘anti-life’ energies. They inform the World Bank and the IMF how much money supply will be available from year to year and what the spending parameters will be.

    Next in line come the central banks: the European Central Bank, The Federal Bank of the USA, the Bank of England, etc. And below these come the first tiers of involvement of national governments and, by extension, the further banking institutions of each country. Thus government and national treasuries are relegated to being fourth down from the top of the power pyramid which controls most of our lives from day to day. Government, in too many cases, is just a vector for the advancement of corporate ambition.

    The establishment of a European Union Treasury will mean that a pan European tax gathering institution is given control over all member states – superseding the already diluted role played by national treasuries to administer the economies of sovereign nation states.

America’s Devil’s Game with Militant-Extremist Islam, Muslim Terrorism

  • America’s Devil’s Game with Extremist Islam
    by A Timeline of US-Cold War Politics and the Rise of Militant Islamism
    It is often difficult to trace the history of the United States’ involvement with—and responsibility for—the evolution of radical Islamism around the world; many of the CIA’s activities in support of Islamist groups were often covert, and a great deal of misinformation exists. Robert Dreyfuss’ new book, Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam, is an attempt at a comprehensive overview of this story, recounting how the CIA, guided by the belief that radical Islamist forces could act as a bulwark against communism, helped fuel the rise of political Islam and militant fundamentalism in the Middle East and Central Asia. Below is a timeline of major events in the U.S. government’s 70-year flirtation with and support for the militant forces that would, in the late 1990s and on September 11, 2001, come back to haunt the United States.

Who is behind Muslim Fundamentalism & Terrorism? Western Illuminist governments and their intelligence agencies! It is deliberate and not a miscalculation as Dreyfuss asserts! They are still owned by the western Illuminati.

What You’re Not Being Told About the Royal Crisis in Saudi Arabia

  • What You’re Not Being Told About the Royal Crisis in Saudi Arabia
    by , http://theantimedia.org/
    (ANTIMEDIA Op-ed)  According to the Washington Post’s Fareed Zakaria, in order to understand how traditionally secular Muslim countries became hubs of radicalization in recent years, you need just one example: Saudi Arabia. Zakaria explains:

    “In Southeast Asia, almost all observers whom I have spoken with believe that there is another crucial cause [behind the ‘cancer’ of Islamic extremism] – exported money and ideology from the Middle East, chiefly Saudi Arabia. A Singaporean official told me, ‘Travel around Asia and you will see so many new mosques and madrassas built in the last 30 years that have had funding from the Gulf. They are modern, clean, air-conditioned, well-equipped – and Wahhabi [Saudi Arabia’s puritanical version of Islam].’ Recently, it was reported that Saudi Arabia plans to contribute almost $1 billion to build 560 mosques in Bangladesh. The Saudi government has denied this, but sources in Bangladesh tell me there’s some truth to the report.”

    As The Week explained two years ago, Saudi Arabia has spent billions of dollars “investing heavily in building mosques, madrasas, schools, and Sunni cultural centers across the Muslim world. Indian intelligence says that in India alone, from 2011 to 2013, some 25,000 Saudi clerics arrived bearing more than $250 million to build mosques and universities and hold seminars.”

The Mainstream Media Is Talking About A Coming Middle East War That Could Involve Saudi Arabia, Iran, The U.S. And Israel

  • The Mainstream Media Is Talking About A Coming Middle East War That Could Involve Saudi Arabia, Iran, The U.S. And Israel
    by Michael Snyder, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/
    People better start waking up and paying attention to what is happening in the Middle East, because the situation is becoming quite serious.  If things go badly, we could be facing a major regional war which would involve not only Saudi Arabia and Iran, but also potentially the United States and Israel.  Yesterday, I quoted an article in the New York Times that warned that tensions between the Saudis and the Iranians were raising “the threat of a direct military clash between the two regional heavyweights”.  And now Jake Novak of CNBC is saying that a “direct conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran, as opposed to the proxy war they’re fighting in Yemen, looks inevitable.”

    I put those last two words in bold so that there wouldn’t be any confusion.  In fact, Novak is warning that the Saudis “are marching ever closer towards a wider regional war”.  Novak understands the dynamics of the Middle East, and he realizes where things could be headed if cooler heads do not prevail.

    Saudi Arabia and Iran have already been fighting proxy wars against one another in Syria and Iran for quite a while, but a direct military conflict between the two could literally be a nightmare scenario.

    One of the primary characters in this ongoing drama is Saudi Arabia’s extremely hawkish crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.  He hates Iran with a passion, and he has already said that he believes that a peace dialogue with Iran is impossible. And over the past several days, events in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon have moved talk of war to the front burner

    First, the kingdom squarely blamed Iran for a missile attack on Riyadh from Yemen that was thwarted by the U.S.-made Patriot anti-missile system. The Saudis called that attack “direct military aggression by the Iranian regime and may be considered an act of war.” 

    Second, the Saudis accused Lebanon of — figuratively at least — declaring “war” against it because of aggression from Hezbollah. That statement spurred even Saudi ally and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to publicly urge for calm.

Is Lebanese PM Saad Hariri a Hostage in Saudi Arabia? Saudi Arabia ‘Holding’ Lebanon PM Hariri, Beirut to Seek Foreign Pressure on Riyadh – Official

  • Saudi Arabia ‘holding’ Lebanon PM Hariri, Beirut to seek foreign pressure on Riyadh – official
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Lebanon believes Saudi Arabia is holding its prime minister, Saad Hariri, “with restricted freedom” in Riyadh. Beirut plans to work with foreign countries to secure the PM’s return home, a senior Lebanese government official told Reuters.

    “Lebanon is heading towards asking foreign and Arab states to put pressure on Saudi [Arabia] to release Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri,”
     said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Lebanese government has not yet declared the initiative.


    The official added that Hariri is still Lebanon’s PM, saying that “keeping Hariri with restricted freedom in Riyadh is an attack on Lebanese sovereignty. Our dignity is his dignity. We will work with [foreign] states to return him to Beirut.”

    Hariri resigned as prime minister on Saturday, in a televised statement recorded in Saudi Arabia. His shocking departure from office has led to speculation that he was coerced into stepping down, having found himself caught up in a regional power struggle.

    In his speech, he attacked Iran and Hezbollah for sowing conflict in Arab states, and said he feared assassination. Saudi Arabia has also accused the Iran-backed Hezbollah of “hijacking” Lebanon’s political system.

    Riyadh, along with aides to Hariri, have denied that he is under house arrest in Saudi Arabia. However, he has not released any statements himself denying his movements are being restricted.

    The official’s remarks come just three days after Saudi Gulf affairs minister Thamer al-Sabhan said the Lebanese government would be “dealt with as a government declaring war on Saudi Arabia,” and blamed Hariri’s administration for not having acted against Hezbollah over the past year.
