let’s assume (optimistically) that the entire strategy of russia and its allies, including iran, is to force pindostan into the position where it can no longer conceal the fact that AQ (at least) is and always has been a false-flag entity, and that 9/11 was faked

Iran Says Missile Didn’t Violate Nuclear Deal
Asa Fitch, WSJ, Oct 12 2015

DUBAI — Iran didn’t violate the nuclear deal reached in July by test-launching a new surface-to-surface ballistic missile this week, deputy Iranian foreign minister Abbas Araghchi said Monday. Iran test-fired a long-range missile called the Emad on Sunday, its state news agency said, leading the Pindo State Dept to say it would take “appropriate actions” at the UN if the move violated UNSCRs. A State Dept spox didn’t elaborate on what that action might entail. But Araghchi said Monday that the test wasn’t a violation of the nuclear deal, and that Iran wouldn’t compromise on its national defense, IRNA reported. A UNSCR implementing the deal in mid-July called upon Iran not to engage in activities related to ballistic missiles that are designed for delivering nuclear warheads for at least eight years. Any missile capable of carrying a large conventional payload, including the Emad, is technically capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. But Anthony Cordesman of CSIS in Washington said:

That prohibition doesn’t lie in missile booster or non-nuclear warhead design, or range or payload. It only applies to actually developing and deploying a nuclear warhead for a given missile.

It is unclear whether Iran has carried out such development activities for the Emad, which is estimated by some analysts to have a range of up to 800 miles, putting it within striking distance of (for instance, just imagining, la la la) Israel. Iranian officials have insisted that the country’s ballistic missile program is for defensive purposes only, and doesn’t fall afoul of restrictions imposed by the UN or other bodies. Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said Sunday:

We don’t ask anyone’s permission to enhance our defense power or missile capability and will firmly pursue our defense plans, particularly in the field of missiles. And Emad is one of the outstanding examples of this.

Two powerful Gulf sheikhs discuss Syria with Putin
M K Bhadrakumar, Asia Times, Oct 12 2015

The meeting of Pres Putin on Sunday at Sochi on the sidelines of the Russian Grand Prix with Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (son of King Salman) and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir of Saudi Arabia signifies a dramatic shift of the templates in the geopolitics of the Syrian question. The very fact that Mohammed bin Salman travelled to Russia for a second time this year already, ostensibly to watch the Formula 1, but intentionally to meet up with Putin, becomes hugely symbolic against the backdrop of the Russian military operations in Syria. The bottom line is that Saudi Arabia has not become hostile to Russia following the latter’s commencement of military operations in Syria. The scant details available so far, indicate that Syria figured in Mohammed bin Salman’s talks with Putin, with the visiting Saudi prince maintaining that Riyadh backs the removal of Assad. Now, is there a vague sign of a softening in the Saudi stance? Possibly so. At least, Mohammed bin Salman did not make Assad’s removal a precondition. According to the Russian account, Mohammed bin Salman said Saudi Arabia desires improvement of ties, with Russia and reportedly discussed ‘cooperation in military technology’, ie arms deals. The most interesting part could be that Mohammed bin Salman showed interest in increased Saudi cooperation with Russia in fighting terrorism. Lavrov said Moscow sought to assuage Riyadh’s concerns on Syria, and both sides shared the objective of preventing a “terrorist caliphate” from taking root in Syria.

Earlier Sunday, Putin also held a meeting in Sochi with UAE Crown Prince Mohammad bin Zayed al-Nahyan in which, again, Syria figured. Conceivably, there would have been some degree of back-to-back consultations between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi prior to Monday’s dramatic diplomatic engagements in Sochi. On Thursday, BBC quoted a “well-placed Saudi government official” to the effect that Riyadh is set to increase supplies of lethal weaponry to the rebels fighting the Syrian government, to make up for the losses they might be suffering from the Russian air strikes. The recipient groups mentioned were Jaish al-Fatah, FSA and Southern Front. The JPost followed up Saturday with an analysis entitled ‘Gulf states boost aid to Syrian rebels’, arguing:

The Sunni world is revving up for an explosive counter-attack, to have powerful intervention in Syria (sic).

The visits by Mohammed bin Salman and Sheikh Zayed to Russia would point in an opposite direction. It seems there could be a whole lot of highly-motivated assessments floating around lately on the geopolitics of the Syrian question that border on disinformation or propaganda and are out of touch with the reality (yeah, but which, yours or theirs? – RB). The first key point is that Saudi Arabia and the UAE have opened a direct line to the Kremlin immediately after Obama summarily decided that the $500m program to train the Syrian rebels is being terminated. Without Pindo involvement, Washington’s regional allies and in particular Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Turkey are forced to do some quick rethinking. They know their limits in confronting Russian military might under their own steam.

Secondly, Saudi Arabia and the UAE are seriously overstretched in Yemen. The Saudi-Emirati intervention in Yemen was always a high-risk gambit, and a classic dilemma faces them today, over six months into the war: whether to wade deeper into the river of blood by taking the war to the Houthi heartland in the north, which would require deployment of much larger forces, or to cut free by accepting some form of Houthi self-rule in the north. The specter that is haunting Saudi Arabia and the UAE is of Yemen reverting to two entities, as they used to be in the Cold War era. However, acquiescing to the division of Yemen, an Arab state, on sectarian lines would be precedent-setting and highly damaging to Saudi prestige. Saudi Arabia would have to learn to live with a de facto Houthi state on its southern border which is certain to be hostile.

On the other hand, if the Saudis plunge deeper into the Houthi heartland, they would be taking on a battle-hardened and highly capable guerrilla army on its native turf, which also happens to be an extremely difficult terrain. Indeed, the risks for Saudi Arabia’s finances if it plunges deeper into the Yemeni morass are self-evident, too. Suffice it so say that Yemen needs to be brought up before the UNSC, where Russia would have a decisive role to play in helping the Saudis and the Emiratis to make a decent face-saving exit from the war. Therefore, annoying Russia or confronting Russia would be the last thing on the Saudi mind today. Russia has a great tradition in diplomacy and without doubt, Putin’s confidence that the improvement of the security situation in Syria will open the door for negotiations leading to a political settlement is well-founded, contrary to the apocalyptic visions being disseminated by the Pindo media reports. Conceivably, Obama understands Putin’s game plan but is unable to say so openly. In any case, Pindostan’s political class and intelligentsia are in no mood to listen to him. Thus we get the following items:

  • Washington’s move Friday to start removing the Patriot batteries from Turkey;
  • the Pentagon announcement Friday regarding the termination of the covert operation to build a rebel Syrian army to overthrow the Assad government;
  • the Pindo decision to shift its own military operations to north-eastern regions of Syria, away from the theatre of the Russian air strikes;
  • Obama’s categorical statement ruling out a proxy war in Syria against Russia, even while estimating that Moscow is risking a quagmire in Syria;
  • Obama’s pledge that the only war that Pindostan intends to fight in Syria is the war against ISIS.

All these need to be seen in perspective. The visit by the Saudi Deputy Crown Prince to meet Putin underscores that the prospects for a Moscow-led diplomatic track opening on Syria in a foreseeable future might have significantly improved. To be sure, Obama has no reason to view the Russian-Saudi proximity in zero-sum terms. Putin disclosed in a TV interview Sunday that the “first steps in the establishment of contacts (with Obama’s NSC, I expect – RB) have been made already.” The terrorist attack in Ankara on Saturday would have brought the Saudis and the other GCC states (and Washington) closer to Putin’s thinking, that fighting ISIS is a common cause and should be the top priority today in Syria. Turkey has pointed the finger at ISIS for Saturday’s terrorist attacks. Putin has been quoted as saying that his talks with Sheikh Zayed were particularly important “in the light of the recent terrorist acts in Turkey.” It is possible that cooperation with Russian intelligence has become vital at a practical level too for the Gulf states in the best interests of their national security.

Obviously, I think all of the above is bullshit. In my humble opinion, ISIS belongs to the Sauds but deniably, via Bandar, the world’s foremost authority on large-scale covert Jihadi organisation, funding and training, who inexplicably doesn’t exist any more as far as the media are concerned. Here is the standard Reuters treatment of the visit of the Arab tyrants to the phony Russian ‘strongman’ – RB

Sauds tell Putin that Russia’s actions in Syria will have dangerous consequences
William Maclean, Vladimir Soldatkin, Reuters, Oct 12 2015

DUBAI – Moscow’s military intervention in Syria will have dangerous consequences, escalating sectarian war there and inspiring militants from around the world to join in, senior Saudi Arabian officials told Russia’s leaders on Sunday, a Saudi source said. The message, twinned with a pledge of support for moderate foes of Assad, signals Saudi suspicions about Moscow’s motives in entering the war. The source said on Monday:

The KSA warns of the dangerous consequences of the Russian intervention. The Russian intervention in Syria will engage them in a sectarian war. The KSA will continue strengthening and supporting the moderate opposition in Syria. These are the positions outlined by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir during their meetings with Pres Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov on Sunday in Sochi.

Moscow’s intervention in Syria has infuriated the kingdom and other foes of Assad, who say the Russian air strikes have been hitting rebel groups opposed to the Syrian leader and not ISIS, which Moscow says it is targeting. Gulf Arab states suspect the Kremlin’s main motive is saving Assad and that counter-terrorism serves as a convenient excuse. Saudi Arabia, along with Turkey and Qatar, is a leading supporter of the rebels fighting Assad. But Riyadh is also worried about the rise of Jihadi groups such as ISIS among the opposition. The Saudi source said:

The recent escalation will contribute in attracting extremists and Jihadis to the war in Syria. It will also alienate ordinary Sunni Muslims around the world. The KSA urged Russia to help fight terrorism in Syria by joining the existing coalition comprising more than 20 nations that is battling ISIS. It is imperative in our view that Assad must quit, as part of the process agreed at Geneva in Jun 2012.

A core element of that plan calls for a future Syrian government to be formed by “mutual consent” of the authorities and the opposition, a stance Washington has said means Assad cannot stay in power. In remarks to journalists on Sunday, Jubeir said:

We expressed our concerns that these operations could be regarded as an alliance between Iran and Russia. Russia said its main goal is the fight against terrorism.

ISIS can draw on veteran Jihadis plus ex-Iraq army officers for leadership
Michael Georgy, Mariam Karouny, Reuters, Oct 12 2015

Biggy Daddy, Baggy Daddy: check the backdrop, Mosul Jul 5 2014

CAIRO/BEIRUT – ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is counting on veteran Jihadis and former Iraqi army officers who form the core of the militant movement to take over if he is killed. New questions arose over ISIS’ leadership structure and who might succeed Baghdadi after Iraq’s military said on Sunday air strikes had hit a convoy carrying him, though Iraqi security officials later denied this. Baghdadi, who rarely appears in public and delivers few audio speeches, makes the vast majority of decisions, including which of the group’s enemies should be killed. His approval is needed even for decisions taken by the five-member Shura Council, which runs ISIS and will elect a new a new leader if Baghdadi is killed, and he rules over a decentralized network of emirs in the field who run the everyday activities of the caliphate he has declared. Baghdadi does, however, lean on a small circle of senior ISIS aides such as Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, the group’s official spox, as he pursues a mission which his fighters describe as “part of God’s path to create a strong Islamic State that will rule the world.” Born in 1977 in Idlib, Syria, Adnani has delivered ISIS’ main messages, including its declaration of a caliphate, which was distributed in five languages. The most important operatives include Abu Muslim al-Turkmani, a former general and military intelligence officer under Saddam Hussein who can provide fighters with training and direction. Baghdadi is also said by followers to rely heavily on Abu Omar al-Shishani, a senior commander in Syria. Born in 1986 in Georgia, which was then still part of the Soviet Union, he has a reputation as a great military mind and has long been at Baghdadi’s side.

Sunday’s air strike was at least the third attack on Baghdadi’s entourage. Despite his power, and a $10m reward for information leading to his capture, little is known about a man who for his own survival has shunned the spotlight. But it is clear he will go to all lengths to achieve his goals, as evidenced in ISIS videos depicting the violent deaths of those who stand in its way. Opponents have been beheaded, shot dead, blown up with fuses attached to their necks and drowned in cages lowered into swimming pools, with underwater cameras capturing their agony. According to the Pindosi reward notice, which depicts a round-faced, brown-eyed man with closely cropped beard and short dark hair, Baghdadi was born in the Iraqi town of Samarra in 1971. Pindostan first came across Baghdadi in Iraq in 2004, when it detained him at the Camp Bucca. He was later released. A follower of AQ during the early years of the Pindo occupation, he later branched out on his own, helping establish ISIS. When he seized tracts of Iraq and Syria and declared a so-called caliphate he hopes will span the Muslim world, he drew militants from around the globe to ISIS, creating a diverse pool of fighters eager to rise up the Jihadi ladder. Baghdadi and his aides have thrown an already fractured Middle East deeper into turmoil and delivered a shock to global security on a scale not seen since the heyday of AQ. Baghdadi’s followers’ killings of Shi’ites on the Arabian Peninsula deepened divisions in the Muslim world and their brutality helped spur Russian military involvement in the region and worsen the most severe refugee crisis since WW2. Baghdadi has exploited conflict in Syria and Iraq to topple AQ from its primacy in transnational militancy, a huge loss of prestige for the group. The recruiting drum he beat was loud and clear: summoning followers to a pitiless Jihad against Shi’ite heretics, Christian crusaders, Jewish infidels, and Kurdish atheists. He berated Arab despots for defiling the honor of Sunni Islam. ISIS became the first militant group to defeat an army when it swept through northern Iraq last year. He said in a speech released on May 14:

Islam was never, even for a single day, the religion of peace! Islam is the religion of war!

This year he set his sights on Saudi Arabia, and his group launched an online magazine for Turks, who volunteered for his Jihad in hundreds if not thousands. Unlike AQ, which focuses on hit-and-run attacks and bombings, ISIS is more concerned with seizing and holding on to territory for the caliphate, acquiring tanks and weapons left by fleeing Iraqi soldiers along the way. Stolen oil sold on the black market provides revenues as Baghdadi seeks military self-sufficiency. Baghdadi’s ambitions stretch far beyond the Middle East, where his men control large swathes of Iraq and Syria and rule over perhaps 10 million people. He has established a presence in Libya, he enjoys support from militants in the Sinai, and his suicide bombers have attacked a variety of targets in war-torn Iraq. Baghdadi has opened the door to foreign fighters, mostly Europeans and Pindosis who have latched on to his call for holy war and are able to return home with their passports to stage attacks. He also accepted a pledge of allegiance from Boko Haram. Many young Islamists who were of school age at the time of 9/11 now look for inspiration not to AQ, whose leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, is in his mid-60s, but to Baghdadi, a generation younger.

Pindostan delivers 50 tons of ammunition to Syria rebel groups
Barbara Starr, CNN, Oct 12 2015

Pindo military cargo planes gave 50 tons of ammunition to rebel groups overnight in northern Syria, using an air drop of 112 pallets as the first step in the Obama administration’s urgent effort to find new ways to support those groups. Details of the air mission over Syria were confirmed by a Pindo official not authorized to speak publicly because the details have not yet been formally announced. C-17s accompanied by fighter escort aircraft, dropped small arms ammunition and other items like hand grenades in Hasakah province in northern Syria to a coalition of rebels groups vetted by Pindostan known as the Syrian Arab Coalition. All pallets successfully were recovered by friendly forces, the official said.

Who? OK, whatever, although they aren’t called that any more:

New Syrian rebel alliance formed, says weapons on the way
Suleiman Al-Khalidi, Tom Perry, John Davison, Phil Stewart, Reuters, Oct 12 2015

AMMAN/BEIRUT/WASHINGTON – A Kurdish militia in northern Syria has joined forces with Arab rebels, and their new alliance has been promised fresh weapon supplies by Pindostan for an assault on ISIS in Raqqa, a spox said on Monday. The alliance calling itself the Democratic Forces of Syria includes the Kurdish YPG militia and Syrian Arab groups, some of which fought alongside it in a campaign that drove ISIS from wide areas of northern Syria earlier this year. The Arab groups in the new alliance are operating under the name “The Syrian Arab Coalition,” a grouping which Pindo officials have said would receive support under a new strategy aimed at fighting ISIS in Syria. A spox for some of the Arab rebels said they were told by Washington that new weapons were being sent to help them launch a joint offensive on the city of Raqqa. Abu Muazz, a spox for the Raqqa Revolutionaries Front, a grouping of mainly Arab tribal insurgents who are mostly drawn from the Raqqa area, said:

We met the Pindosis and this has been approved and we have been told these new arms are on their way. Our group is 3,200 strong and well trained. We will begin using the weapons within days of their arrival. We have another 600 fighters who are currently wounded. A major offensive against ISIS could capture Raqqa in less than two months, provided the right weapons and quantities arrive.

A Pindo military official has told Reuters that the Syrian Arab Coalition would push down towards Raqqa, ISIS’ de facto capital, while staying east of the Euphrates, which could ease Turkish concerns about any further expansion of Kurdish influence in northern Syria, which Turkey fears could fuel separatism among its own Kurds. Pindostan last week announced a shake-up of its support to Syrian rebels fighting ISIS, effectively ending its program to train fighters outside Syria and focusing instead on providing weapons to groups whose commanders have been vetted. The YPG has to date proved the most effective partner on the ground for Pindo-led air strikes against ISIS. By deepening ties with groups from Syria’s Arab majority, it could deflect concern among some Arabs that it exists solely to fight for the interests of Kurds. The YPG drove deep into Raqqa province earlier this year, but stopped short of advancing on Raqqa city, saying it wanted Syrian Arab rebels to lead such an assault. The new alliance includes the YPG, various Arab tribal groups such as Jaysh al-Thuwwar and Jaysh al-Sanadid, and an Assyrian Christian group, according to a statement announcing its establishment. The statement, which was sent to Reuters by a YPG spokesman, said:

The sensitive stage our country Syria is going through and rapid developments on the military and political front require that there be a united national military force for all Syrians, joining Kurds, Arabs, Syriacs and other groups.

Nasir Haj Mansur, an official in the defense ministry of the Kurdish administration in YPG-held territory, said by telephone:

Given that in general, these are democratic and secular forces that believe to a great degree in diversity, we hope that they will receive support. The current goal in practical terms is to confront Daesh, given that it is the first enemy, but the goal is also to build a democratic Syria in the future.

NATO says will help Turkey against Russia if needed
Reuters, Oct 12 2015

STAVANGER, Norway – NATO will help Turkey if needed, NATO Sec-Gen Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday, days after Russian jets bombing Syria violated Turkish airspace. Asked whether NATO would be prepared to defend Turkey against Russia, Stoltenberg told Reuters:

Turkey is a strong ally. They have the second largest army. They have a capable air force. The Turkish armed forces are the first responders. But NATO is there to help and assist them, if they need it.

(This story has been corrected in headline and text to show Stoltenberg’s answer was to a question about Russia, not about the bombing in Ankara.)

“We are the masters,” says Israeli mayor as 3 more Plastelinans are killed
Charlotte Silver, Electronic Intifada, Oct 13 2015

activestills14445729086wvmwAbu Dis, East Jayloomia, Oct 11 (Photo: Yotam Ronen/Active Stills)

On Monday, IOF shot dead three Plastelinan youths, bringing the total number of Plastelinans killed since heightened violence erupted on Oct 1 across the OPT and present-day Israel to 27. More than 1,300 Plastelinans have been injured by live ammo and rubber-coated steel bullets, according to the PA health ministry. In the same period, four Israelis have been killed and 67 injured. Plastelinans have called for a general strike in the OPT and present-day Israel to protest Israel’s escalating repression. As violence continues, Plastelinan children and teenagers make up a large proportion of the dead and injured. Netanyahu has ordered the deployment of up to 2,000 paramilitary Border Police (MAGAV) reservists in occupied East Jayloomia. On Monday evening in central Gaza, Israel claimed that about 20 Plastelinans broke through a boundary fence near al-Bureij refugee camp, reportedly managing to enter Israel before the army responded with live fire and tear gas. In recent days, 9 Plastelinans have been killed by IOF fire across the boundary into Gaza and a pregnant mother and her baby daughter were killed in an air strike. Mustafa Adel al-Khatib, 18, was shot dead at the entrance to the Old City in Jayloomia. Israeli police said he attempted to stab a Border Police officer before other officers in the area opened fire on him. But Plastelinan witnesses told Ma’an News that he had no knife. Hasan Khalid Manasra, 15, was shot by police in the Israeli settlement of Pisgat Ze’ev in East Jayloomia. He was with his cousin Ahmad Salih Manasra, 13, who was seriously injured. Israeli police allege that boys stabbed and injured two Jews, an adult and a 13-year-old. Hasan died immediately, while Ahmad remains in critical condition. A video reported to be of Ahmad gasping for breath as he bleeds on the ground was uploaded to social media by an Israeli passer-by. Onlookers can be heard shouting insults at the bleeding boy including:

Die, son of a whore!

Another person tells the police:

Give him one in the head!

The video has generated shock even among Plastelinans regularly exposed to the occupation’s violence. Wattan TV said that it demonstrated the “ISIS-like terrorist” mentality of IOF and settlers toward Plastelinans. This video is extremely graphic.

A third Plastelinan was killed Monday night after he allegedly stabbed and lightly injured an Israeli soldier on a bus in Jayloomia and tried to steal his gun. The name of the person was not reported. The same day, a teenage Plastelinan girl was shot and wounded in Jayloomia. A schoolmate interviewed by Shehab News Agency identified the teenage girl as Marah al-Bakri. Police allege that she had tried to stab a police officer, who was slightly injured. On Sunday Ahmad Sharaka, 13, was killed by a live bullet in the neck at a protest outside Ramallah, near the Israeli settlement of Beit El.

A video filmed in Hebron shows Ziad Abu Khalil, 65, confronting the IOF and shouting that they should be ashamed of themselves for shooting children. Abu Khalil showed no fear even when they raised their guns. He yelled at them until he collapsed on the ground and was rushed to hospital by Plastelinan medics.

On Sunday, Plastelinan legal rights group Al-Haq published the names of all Plastelinans who have been killed since Oct 1:

Yair Lapid, leader of the ostensibly centrist party Yesh Atid (a former TV presenter, son of the well-known leader of another small centrist party which is now defunct, all such parties invariably being right-wing pawns – RB), has encouraged the Israeli Jewish public to “shoot to kill” when confronted with an alleged attacker. Lapid said:

Don’t hesitate, even when an incident just starts, shooting to kill is the right thing to do. The directives should specify shooting to kill, when anyone pulls out a knife or screwdriver or whatever.

Haaretz reported that Lapid “clarified that authorities will give full legal backing to such actions.” Haaretz reported that police arrested dozens of people in present-day Israel and the occupied West Bank, including 33 in overnight raids on Sunday. Ten people were arrested near Ramallah for alleged involvement with Hamas, while others are being investigated for “terrorist activity, disturbance of the peace, and violence against civilians and security forces,” according to Haaretz. Police are also cracking down on the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. Netanyahu has instructed the Shin Bet to work with legal advisors to prepare the case to outlaw the party. One of the party’s leaders, Yousif Abu Jama, was arrested on suspicion of organizing an “illegal gathering.” Plastelinans in the OPT and the Higher Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens in present-day Israel have called for a general strike on Tuesday in the OPT and in Plastelinan cities inside present-day Israel. Plastelinan MKs have expressed their support for it as well. Aida Touma-Sliman, a Plastelinan MK from Akka, said:

In recent days this sense of security was harmed by assaults by Jewish racists against Arabs. More importantly, however, the police and the prime minister (sic) are calling on citizens to carry weapons, which can pose a real danger to the lives of Arab individuals.

The Joint List, the grouping of Plastelinan MKs, urged broad public participation in rallies protesting Israel’s crackdown on Plastelinans. Adalah, a legal rights group for Plastelinan citizens of Israel, has monitored an uptick in “brutal and repressive” tactics adopted by the Israeli police, including arbitrary arrests of minors, “preventive arrests” of activists intended to stifle demonstrations, arrests of activists’ family members and severe physical violence against protesters, particularly in East Jayloomia. Another law to increase the penalty for throwing stones passed its first reading in the Knesset. Punishments for minors in present-day Israel and occupied East Jayloomia used to be that parents’ benefits would be frozen or the minor would be sentenced to jail time. Sponsored by Ayelet Shaked, the justice minister who is notorious for her violent anti-Plastelinan incitement, the new law would allow both penalties to be issued at once.On Monday, three minors were arrested in Umm al-Fahim and two more in Jayloomia for allegedly throwing stones. In attempt to appease demands for tougher “security,” the mayor of the northern Israeli city Kiryat Bialik instructed police to inspect the ID cards of Arab workers at construction sites in the city, Ynet reported. The mayor, Eli Dukorsky, wrote in a directive to city officials:

We are the masters of this land.

i have to take my hat off to james petras: his marxism is decidedly mechanical, old-fashioned and limited in scope, but he sure has guts

Just two simple points: first, James Petras did not write this for Boiling Frogs, though some commenters there seem to think he did. Sibel, take note: if something was not written for you, do not present it as if it was. My second point is that (I assume) James is Jewish himself, which does not stop the fools from accusing him of anti-Semitism. This word basically does your thinking for you, so I would recommend not using it. I have just noticed that James makes an apparent denial of being Jewish at the end of this (highlight). I think he is privately defining ‘Jews’ as ‘professed Jews’, of whom he is not one. But it is hard to become an ‘ex-Jew’, and Atzmon at least realises you should not pretend you weren’t born as one – RB

The Doctrine of ‘Superior People’: The Bond between Israel and World Zionism
James Petras, Sep 9 2015

The single greatest feat of Israel and its overseas missions has not been material success, or the military conquest of millions of unarmed Plastelinans, it has been ideological: the widespread acceptance in Pindostan of a doctrine that claims ‘Jews are a superior people’. Apart from small extremist right-wing sects who exhibit visceral anti-Semitism and denigrate everything Jewish, there are very few academics and politicians willing to question this supremacist doctrine. On the contrary, there is an incurable tendency to advance oneself by accepting and embellishing on it. For example, in Aug 2015, Pindo Vice-Pres Biden attributed ‘special genius’ to Jews, slavish flattery that embarrassed even New York’s liberal Jewish intellectuals.

Israel’s dominant role in formulating Pindosi Middle East policy is largely a product of its success at recruiting, socializing and motivating overseas Jews to act as an organized force to intervene in Pindosi politics and push Israel’s agenda. What motivates Pindosi Jews, who have been raised and educated in Pindostan, to serve Israel? After all, these are individuals who have prospered, achieved high status and occupy the highest positions of prestige and responsibility. Why would they parrot the policies of Israel and follow the dictates of Israeli leaders (a foreign regime), serving its violent colonial, racist agenda? What binds a majority of highly educated and privileged Jews to the most rabidly right-wing Israeli regime in history, a relationship they actually celebrate? What turns comfortable, prosperous Pindosi Jews into vindictive bullies, willing and able to blackmail, threaten and punish any dissident voices among their Gentile and Jewish compatriots who have dared to criticize Israel? What prevents many intelligent, liberal and progressive Jews from openly questioning Israel’s agenda, and especially confronting the role of Zionist zealots who serve as Tel Aviv’s fifth column against the interest of Pindostan?

There are numerous historical and personal factors that can and should be taken into account to understand this phenomenon. In this essay I am going to focus on one: the ideology that ‘Jews are a superior people’. The notion that Jews, either through some genetic, biologic, cultural, historical, familial and/or upbringing, have special qualities allowing them to achieve at a uniquely higher level than the ‘inferior’ non-Jews. We will proceed by sketching the main outline of the Jewish supremacist ideology and then advance our critique. We will conclude by evaluating the negative consequences of this ideology and propose a democratic alternative.

Jewish Supremacism

Exponents of Jewish Supremacism frequently cite the prestigious awards, worldly successes and high honors, which, they emphasize, have been disproportionately achieved by Jews. The argument goes: While Jews represent less than 0.2% of the world population, they have produced 24% of the Pindosi Nobel prizewinners; over 30% of Ivy League professors and students; and the majority of major Pindosi film, stage and TV producers. They cite the ‘disproportionate number’ of scientists, leading doctors, lawyers and billionaires. They cite past geniuses like, Einstein, Freud and Marx. They point to the founders of the world’s great monotheistic religions: Moses and Abraham. They lay claim to a unique learning tradition embedded in centuries of Talmudic scholarship. Jewish supremacists never miss a chance to cite the ‘Jewish background’ of any highly accomplished contemporary public figures in the entertainment, publication, financial fields or any other sectors of life in Pindostan. Disproportionately great accomplishments by a disproportionate minority has become the mantra for heralding a self-styled ‘meritocratic elite’…. and for justifying its disproportionate wealth, power and privileges – and influence…

Challenging the Myths of Jewish Supremacists

There are serious problems regarding the claims of the Jewish Supremacists. For centuries Jewish ‘wisdom’ was confined to textual exegesis of religious dogma, in texts full of superstition and social control, as well as blind intolerance, and which produced neither reasoned arguments nor contributed to scientific and human advancement. Jewish scholarship of note occurred among thinkers like Spinoza who revolted against the Jewish ghetto gatekeepers and rejected Jewish dogma. Notable scientists emerged in the context of working and studying with non-Jews in non-Jewish institutions, the universities and centers of learning in the West. The majority of world-renowned Jewish scholars integrated and contributed to predominantly non-Jewish (Moslem and Christian) and secular institutions of higher learning. Historically, highly talented individuals of Jewish origin succeeded by renouncing the constraints of everyday Jewish life, rabbinical overseers and Jewish institutions. Most contemporary prestigious scientists, including the frequently cited Nobel Prizewinners, have little or nothing to do with Judaism! And their contributions have everything to do with the highly secular, integrated culture in which they prospered intellectually, despite expressions of crude anti-Semitism in the larger society.

Secondly , Jewish Supremacists persist in claiming ‘racial credit’ for the achievements of individuals who have publicly renounced, denounced and distanced themselves from Judaism and have dismissed any notion of Israel as their spiritual homeland. Their universal prestige has prevented them from being labelled apostate or ‘self-hating’. Albert Einstein, often cited by the Supremacists as the supreme example of ‘Jewish genius’, denounced Israel’s war crimes and showed disdain for any tribal identity. In their era, Marx and Trotsky, like the vast majority of emancipated European Jews, given the chance, became engaged in universalistic organizations, attacking the entire notion that Jews were a ‘special people’ chosen by divine authority (or by the latter-day Zionists).

Thirdly, Supremacists compile a very selective list of virtuous Jews, while omitting areas of life and activity where Jews have disproportionately played a negative and destructive role. After all is it Jewish ‘genius’ that makes Israel a leading exporter of arms and high-tech intrusive spy systems, and sends military and paramilitary advisers and torturers to work with death squad regimes in Africa and Latin America? Among the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are three Israeli Prime Ministers who waged wars of ethnic cleansing against millions of Plastelinans and expanded racist ‘Jews only’ settlements throughout the occupied Plastelinan territories. These include Menachem Begin (notorious career bomber and terrorist), Yitzhak Rabin (a militarist who was assassinated by an even more racist Jewish terrorist) and Shimon Peres. Among Jewish Pindosi Nobel ‘Peaceniks’ is Henry Kissinger, who oversaw the brutal and illegal Pindo war in Indo-China, causing 4 million Vietnamese deaths; who wrote the ‘template for regime change’ by overthrowing the democratically elected government of Chilean President Allende and condemned Chile to decades of police state terror; and who supported Indonesia’s destruction of East Timor! In other words, these Nobel recipients, whom Supremacists cite as ‘examples of Jewish Supremacy’, have sown terror and injustice on countless captive peoples and nations, giving the Nobel Peace Prize a dubious distinction.

Among the greatest billion-dollar swindlers in recent Pindosi history, we find a disproportionate percentage of Pindosi Jews, curiously not mentioned by the Supremacists in their usual litany: Bernard Madoff pillaged over $50b from his clients, Ivan Boesky, Michael Milken and Marc Rich are well-known names adding the distinction of ‘Jewish genius’ to a list of financial mega-felons. Among the less respectable notables whose material successes have been tarnished by personal weaknesses, we have the billionaire and paedophile pimp, Jeffry Epstein; IMF President, rapist and debaucher Dominic Strauss Kahn (I have the impression he was set up – RB), entrepreneur and ‘nudist’ Dov Charney, New York Governor and ‘repeat customer’ Elliot Spitzer, Congressman and exhibitionist Anthony Weiner and the fun-loving sports impresario who brought down FIFA, the piratical Chuck Blazer. Curiously, none of these extraordinarily successful notables have been cited as examples of Jewish Supremacy.

As we contemplate the millions of war refugees driven from the MENA, we should credit the role of Pindo neolib & neocon ideologues and policy-makers, a disproportionate percentage of whom are Jews. Millions of Chilean workers suffered as Milton Friedman and his Chicago Boys ‘advised’ Chilean Dictator Augusto Pinochet on dismantling the welfare state (even if it required the murder of trade unionists!). Ayn Rand (Alyssa Rosenbaum) and her fanatical free-market epigones have savaged all progressive social legislation and turned the most retrograde forms of selfishness into a religion of ‘superiority’! The disastrous Pindosi war against Iraq was largely organized, promoted and justified by a disproportionate percentage of Pindosi Jews (Zionists), including leading policy-makers in the Bush and Obama administration: Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Elliott Abrams, Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, David Frum, Shulsky, Levey, Cohen, Rahm Emanuel, etc… They continue to push for war against Iran, and should be seen as the ‘godfathers’ of the tragedies of Iraq, Syria and Libya, where millions have fled. The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression was largely due to the financial policies of Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan. The trillion-dollar bailout of Wall Street by Ben Shalom Bernacke and Stanley Fischer, while Janet Yellen ignored the plight of millions of Pindosis who lost their homes because of mortgage foreclosures.

In sum, Jewish Supremacists should proudly take credit for the Pindosi Jews who have been disproportionately responsible for the largest economic and foreign policy failures of the contemporary period, including the horrific suffering these have entailed! Back in the more normal world of crime, Russian-Jewish mobsters dominate or share supremacy with the Italian Mafia in New York, LA, Las Vegas, Miami and scores of cities in between. They display their unique genius at extortion and murder, knowing they can always find safe haven in the ‘Promised Land’! On the cultural front, the finest Jewish writers, artists, musicians, scientists have emerged outside of Israel. A few may have immigrated to the Jewish state, but many other intellectuals and artists of note have chosen to leave Israel, repelled by the racist, intolerant and repressive apartheid state and society promoted by Jewish Supremacists.


The record provides no historical basis for the claims of Jewish Supremacists. What has been cited as the disproportionate ‘Jewish genius’ turns out to be a two-edged sword, demonstrating the best and the worst. Claiming a monopoly on high academic achievement must be expanded to owning up to the Jewish authors of the worst financial and foreign policy disasters. They too are ‘high achievers’. Donations from financial billionaires, all ‘geniuses’, have financed the war crimes of the Israeli state and made possible the expansion of violent Jewish settlers throughout occupied Plastelina, spreading misery and displacement for millions. In fairness, the most notorious Jewish swindler in contemporary Pindostan was even-handed. ‘Bernie’ Madoff swindled Jews and Goys, Hollywood moguls and New York philanthropists. He wasn’t picky about who he fleeced. The latest fashion among Jewish Supremacist ‘geneticists’ is to extol the discovery of uniquely special ‘genes’ predisposing Jews to experience the ‘holocaust’, and even inherit the experience of suffering from long-dead ancestors. Such ‘scientists’ should be careful. As Gilad Atzmon wryly notes, “They will put the anti-Semites out of business.”

Ultimately, Jews who have assimilated into the greater society or have not, who intermarry or do not, are all products of the social system in which they live and like everyone else, are the makers of the roles they decide to play within it. In the past, a uniquely disproportional percentage of Jews chose to fight for universal humanist values, rejecting the notion of a chosen people. Today a disproportionate percentage of educated Jews have chosen to embrace an ‘ethno-religious’ Supremacist dogma, which binds them to an apartheid, militarist state and ideology ready to drag the world into a global war. Never forget! Racialist supremacist doctrines led Germany down the blind ally of totalitarianism and world war, in which scores of millions perished. Jews, especially young Jews, are increasingly repelled by Israel’s crimes against humanity. The next step for them (and for us) is to criticize, demystify and stand up to the toxic supremacist ideology linking the powerful domestic Zionist power configuration and its political clones with Israel. The root problem is not genetic, it is collective political dementia: a demented ideology that claims a chosen elite can forever dominate and exploit the majority of Pindo sheeple. The time will come when the accumulated disasters will force the Pindo sheeple to push back, unmasking the elite and rejecting its supremacist doctrines. Let us hope that they will act with passion guided by reason.

this looks so nice as it is, i would spoil it if i transcribed it (but I shall)

“elections in Ukraine”… yeah… kinda…
Alameda, Donetsk, Today, 00:03:31


In Ukraine they’re trying to remove people older than 55 years from voting in elections. Petitions calling not to allow pensioners to the polls have already appeared on the website of President Poroshenko. The initiator of one of them is a man called Sergei Medvedev, prompting PP to enter an electoral law limiting the vote by age.

Dear Piotr Alexeievich!
I am addressing you through the Internet as your voter and primarily as a citizen of our country. In response to recent events in the country which have continued for the last two years, please consider my petition. As you know, the main problem of our country is the irresponsible attitude of many people towards elections of all levels. Objectively, older people have the “Soviet habit” to vote for those whom they see on TV and, over and over again, they make the fatal mistake of allowing people who are not suitable to come to power, to posts. I’m sorry, but pensioners (the majority) are vulnerable people, and unfortunately theirs is a faulty state. The older generation often vote not for the future, and especially not for the future of their children and grandchildren, but for today. Therefore I ask you to consider a proposal to prohibit people older than 60 years from voting in elections, referendums, etc.

That this idea is a direct violation of the constitutional rights and freedoms of the individual, the uneducated patriot does not confuse. Before the Constitution there, when pensioners threaten to tear Ukraine away from EU and NATO and to return to the USSR?! For this initiative until now voted almost 700 people, but there is no doubt that this proposal will gain 25,000 autographs. The idea to “take away grandma’s passport” is not new. It was even lobbied for by opponents of Mayor Chernovetski, who was twice elected Mayor of Kiev thanks to the grandmothers. Now, however, the Ukrainian authorities have launched a massive offensive on the constitutional rights of voters, afraid to get an unpredictable election result. So first, a ban on voting in elections was introduced for immigrants. Under the new election laws, nearly 2 million citizens will not be able to vote in local elections. Now is the turn of the pensioners. The program will soon proceed to the entrepreneurs, because the middle class vote for the wallet. Surely for the parliamentary and presidential elections, the electoral field will be sterile: to the polls to prevent will be only the witnesses of the sect of the Maidan, ATO participants and buyers of “Roshen” (C). But because trade can push the idea… until Mar-Apr time they have the car – and we need it?!

one often sees comparisons to the spanish civil war which, as everybody knows now, stalin never intended to win

“Those who engaged in Odessa in Moscow miscalculated”
Maxim Yushin, Kommersant, Sep 23 2015

When was the candid conversation with well-intentioned people who stand above the fray, one told me, clutching his head:

You, Moscow, are to blame. You wanted to buy Odessa on the cheap. You picked us such people who are associated with the “Russian world”, only those who you sympathise with. You didn’t even try to lift brains to buy a city like Odessa.

It is very sad, I had nothing to say, except that I wasn’t involved. But those who were, clearly miscalculated. Odessa is a small town, everybody knows everybody, and everything. Would bet on others, well, would have found some man who was a moral authority, as well? Even those who sympathized with us said:

It is better to let this полунасильственная Ukrainization happen, it’s better to let them be. At least we know what to expect from them, but a friend to sit we will not.

The attitude of the citizens of Odessa to Russia:

In Odessa absolutely everyone speaks Russian, in contrast to Kiev, where Ukrainian is now heard more and more often. I have heard the Ukrainian language in Odessa just once. All the signs are in Russian, that’s also a fundamental difference from Kiev. There are flyers, and there almost all the phone numbers in Crimea disrupted every day, Evpatoria, Yalta, wherever they organize the buses, and it should be understood that not everybody is in favour of blockade of the Crimea, they always ride the buses. A woman heard at the seaport said: “No, no, they always fly.” Well, anyway, there is constantly some sort of communication going on. (damn right – RB)
