There is no good in much of their secret conferences save (in) whosoever enjoineth charity and fairness and peace-making among the people and whoso doeth that, seeking the good pleasure of God, We shall bestow on him a vast reward. (Al-Nisa, 4:114).

This was definitely not supposed to happen. It seems that an Israeli military man with the rank of colonel was “caught with IS pants down.” By that I mean he was captured amid a gaggle of so-called IS–or Islamic State or ISIS or DAESH depending on your preference–terrorists, by soldiers of the Iraqi army. Under interrogation by the Iraqi intelligence he apparently said a lot regarding the role of Netanyahu’s IDF in supporting IS.
In late October an Iranian news agency, quoting a senior Iraqi intelligence officer, reported the capture of an Israeli army colonel, named Yusi Oulen Shahak, reportedly related to the ISIS Golani Battalion operating in Iraq in the Salahuddin front. In a statement to Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency a Commander of the Iraqi Army stated, “The security and popular forces have held captive an Israeli colonel.”
He added that the IDF colonel “had participated in the Takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations.” He said the colonel was arrested together with a number of ISIL or IS terrorists, giving the details: “The Israeli colonel’s name is Yusi Oulen Shahak and is ranked colonel in Golani Brigade… with the security and military code of Re34356578765az231434.”
Ever since the beginning of Russia’s very effective IS bombing of select targets in Syria on September 30, details of the very dirty role of not only Washington, but also NATO member Turkey under President Erdogan, Qatar and other states has come into the sunlight for the first time.
As U.S. Special Ops Enter Syria, Growing Presence in Africa Goes Unnoticed
Published on 13 Nov 2015 : Democracynow.org - The recent U.S. deployment of special operations forces to Syria expands a global U.S. battlefield that is at a historic size. This year, special ops have been sent to a record 147 countries—75 percent of the nations on the planet. It’s a 145 percent increase from the days of George W. Bush. And it means that on any given day elite U.S. forces are on the ground in 70 to 90 countries. Those shocking numbers are revealed by our guest, the journalist Nick Turse. For years, Turse has been tracking the expansion of global U.S. militarism for the website TomDispatch and other outlets. His latest book, "Tomorrow’s Battlefield: U.S. Proxy Wars and Secret Ops in Africa," focuses on one particular American military battlefield that often goes unnoticed. Turse says the U.S. military is now involved in more than 90 percent of Africa’s 54 nations.
As the same establishment press that sold the public the Iraq WMD lies "breaks" the "news" that Bush and Blair planned the invasion in advance, James shows the documents we've had for a decade telling us the exact same thing. And people wonder why trust in media is at an all-time low...
Today, the villagers of Nabi Saleh took creative non-violent action against the Israeli forces that violently suppress their weekly Friday protest. As they awaited a decision regarding the suspension of the Israeli football association from FIFA, the residents marched down the road holding up red cards and playing football. The occupation forces responded with sound grenades and tens of rounds of tear gas. The villagers were undeterred and returned to their game of football after the affects of the gas had worn off. The protest was in solidarity with the Palestinian footballers who are subjected to discriminative restrictions by Israel.

Published on 18 Mar 2015 - This lecture restricts itself to establishing the foundation from the Qur'an for friendly ties between Muslims and Orthodox Christians in particular, but does not as yet address the subject of an alliance that is divinely-ordained. That will be addressed in the second recording Insha Allah.
This recording also offers a view concerning a Christian response to usury and to bogus paper money which can instantaneously electrify the entire world of Islam in a manner that would cause eternal dismay to our mutual enemies, and would significantly advance the cause of an alliance between Islam and RUM.

“We do not participate in, solicit, encourage or condone the use of torture or cruel inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment for any purpose,” the UK government’s Annual Human Rights Report says. But Amnesty International claims otherwise.
The report released by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) on Thursday documents the government’s ongoing commitment to “combat terrorism in an effective and sustainable way” and to “promote human rights and the rule of law in other countries.”
Its counter-terror mission statement adds that in order to fulfill its aims, the UK must “live up to our values and obligations at all times, and demand that our partners do the same.”
The annual report follows damning comments in Amnesty International’s annual State of the World’s Human Rights report, published last month, which claimed the UK’s “nationalist, thinly veiled xenophobic attitudes” were responsible for anti-EU rhetoric that targets human rights.
Speaking at the launch of the report, Minister for Human Rights Baroness Anelay acknowledged the UK still has a “long way to go,” but said the country puts “a great deal of effort into protecting and promoting human rights around the world, and remains committed to standing up for those who do not enjoy the freedoms we so easily take for granted.”
She added that during her work she had “seen how human rights are intrinsically connected with British values – open market economies, liberal democracies, free media, individual liberties and rule of law.”
‘Britain is leading the war against human rights’ – Amnesty International
The report notes that the Counter-Terrorism Programme Fund (CTPF) is one of the FCO’s largest strategic programs, and praises its continued work to prevent extremism and radicalization.
The work of security services, however, was criticized by human rights charity CAGE, which blamed it for the radicalization of Mohammed Emwazi, the man revealed to be Islamic State executioner Jihadi John.
Theresa May’s increased counter-terror measures, which were proposed in autumn 2014, have also drawn accusations of unfairly targeting Muslims.
The government’s report claims its “position on torture is clear – we do not participate in, solicit, encourage or condone the use of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment for any purpose.” However, Amnesty International said many allegations of UK complicity in torture overseas remain unresolved.
Amnesty also reported that a future Conservative government would repeal the Human Rights Act and create a separate British Bill of Rights. Amnesty expressed its concerns over continuing high levels of communication surveillance.
Amnesty International UK Director Kate Allen said Britain “is going in the wrong direction on rights, protections and fairness.”
She said that public safety was paramount, but added it should not be achieved at the cost of fundamental civil liberties.
“The UK talks the talk on the global stage on human rights but this year’s summary shows they need to tend to their own garden,” she said.
US State Department spokesperson said that the United States is opposed to Russia selling the Antey-2500 anti-ballistic missile system to Iran following reports that Russia is considering providing Tehran with the advanced system.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States is opposed to Russia selling the Antey-2500 anti-ballistic missile system to Iran following reports that Russia is considering providing Tehran with the advanced system, US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Monday.
“We’ve seen these reports and once we have more details… we will certainly raise this at the appropriate levels,” Psaki said at a press briefing.
Moscow reportedly previously cancelled a 2010 agreement to sell the S-300 surface-to-air weapons system to Teheran.
“If reports are true that Russia has decided not to sell the S-300 system to Iran we would certainly welcome that, but we would have similar objections to the Antey-2500 system,“ Psaki said.
Iran is considering the purchase of the Antey-2500 system, said Sergei Chemezov, the head of Russian state defense and technology conglomerate Rostec at a weapons expo in the United Arab Emirates on Monday.
The more advanced Antey-2500 anti-ballistic missile system is capable of shooting down short and medium range ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft.
Chemezov is on the list of persons covered by the US sanctions against Russia.
The head of Russian state defense conglomerate Rostec says Moscow has offered Iran its latest Antey-2500 missile defense systems after a deal to supply less powerful S-300 missiles was scrapped under Western pressure.
Tehran is now considering the offer, Russia’s TASS news agency quoted Sergei Chemezov as saying on Monday.
“As far as Iran is concerned, we offered Antey-2500 instead of S-300. They are thinking. No decision has been made yet,” Chemezov said.
There was no immediate response to Chemezov's comments from Iran.
Under a contract signed in 2007, Russia was obliged to provide Iran with at least five S-300 defense systems.
However, Moscow refused to deliver the system to Iran under the pretext that it is covered by the fourth round of the United Nations Security Council sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear program.
Following Moscow’s failure to deliver the systems, Iran filed a complaint against the Russian arms firm Rosoboronexport with the International Court of Arbitration in Geneva.
The Antey-2500 was developed from the 1980s-generation S-300V system (SA-12A Gladiator and SA-12B Giant). It can engage missiles travelling at 4,500 meters per second, with a range of 2,500 kilometers (1,500 miles), according to the company that makes it, Almaz-Antey.
The S-300 missiles have a 125-mile (200-kilometers) range.
US historian Webster Tarpley says that the United States created the Islamic State and uses jihadists as its secret army to destabilize the Middle East.
The Islamic State is a secret army of the United States and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a leader of the terrorist group, is a close friend of US Senator John McCain, says US historian Webster Tarpley, according to Iranian News Agency IRNA.
The author, known for his book “9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA”, said that all terrorism around the world is created and facilitated by the US government.
These are not Tarpley’s first comments in which he blames the United States for creating the Islamic State. Earlier, Press TV had an interview with Tarpley during which he explained his rationale why he thinks the United States was behind the creation of the terrorist group
Tarpley began by saying that the money that supports the Islamic State and its operations comes from Saudi Arabia, a key US ally in the Middle East. The main money donor of the Islamic State is allegedly Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal, the brother of Saud bin Faisal Al Saud, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, and Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud, the former Saudi Ambassador to the United States. Having said that, Tarpley concludes that if the United States really wanted to get rid of the Islamic State, it would have easily issued an ultimatum to Saudi Arabia and told the Gulf Kingdom to stop sending arms and money to the terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
Second, Turkey, a NATO member with a huge army, is right next to the war-town Syria and Iraq, where the jihadists operate. Tarpley asks the important question: why cannot the Turkish Army come into the lawless Syrian and Iraqi territory and simply wipe the jihadists off the face of the Earth in a matter of weeks, especially if the United States and NATO were so keen to destroy the Islamic State?
If the United States actually thought that the Islamic State was a monstrosity that must be destroyed at all cost, Tarpley asks why wouldn’t the White House join the government of Bashar Assad in Syria, the legally recognized government and the UN member state, in the fight against the jihadists and crush them once and for all? And also, why did the US troops bomb Syrian units loyal to Assad, once the Syrian army started to defeat the jihadists and push them away? Counterproductive and senseless at best, the secret supporter of the militants at worst, Tarpley says.
And lastly, referring to how the jihadist group is using social media and Internet to spread its propaganda and recruit new fighters, Tarpley said there is an interest in not having the Islamic State propaganda shut down online. All major Internet companies are based in the United States and therefore the White House could easily limit, if not close down, the presence of Islamic State on the Internet, if it wanted to.
Although Tarpley’s line of thinking might seem a little too provocative to some, the questions that he asks are nonetheless important. There is certainly a connection between the emergence of al-Qaeda and the American involvement in Afghanistan back in the 1980s. And since al-Qaeda was a forefather of the Islamic State, there might be a possibility of a more intimate relationship between the government of the United States and the jihadists, currently cutting people’s heads off in Iraq and Syria.
False evidence planted by the CIA in Iran in an effort to sabotage peace talks 15 years ago has been exposed in a judicial hearing after an ex-CIA agent, Jeffrey Sterling, leaked classified information.
The leaked documents which expose the CIA planting nuclear evidence in Iran now bring into question the conclusions reached by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding Iran’s atomic program.
The intelligence in question pertains to fake designs of atomic components that were transferred to Iran in February 2000.
Now it turns out the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) could be forced to reassess their earlier conclusions regarding Iran’s atomic program, the publication quoted two anonymous Western diplomats as saying. Part of the IAEA’s suspicions about the alleged Iran’s nuclear weapons program relies on information provided by multiple intelligence agencies.
“This story suggests a possibility that hostile intelligence agencies could decide to plant a ‘smoking gun’ in Iran for the IAEA to find,” Peter Jenkins, the UK’s former envoy to the Vienna-based agency told Bloomberg. “That looks like a big problem.”
In the latest quarterly report, the atomic watchdog said that the team of experts is still concerned about Iran’s nuclear intentions, prompting an immediate reaction from Israel.
“The agency remains concerned about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed nuclear-related activities involving military-related organizations, including activities related to the development of a nuclear payload for a missile,” it reads.
Whether or not the revealed CIA secret will change this assessment remains to be seen, but Tehran has always insisted that its atomic energy program is peaceful.
“This revelation highlights the dangers of reliance by the IAEA upon evidence concerning Iran provided to it by third party states whose political agendas are antithetical to Iran,” Dan Joyner, a law professor at the University of Alabama told Bloomberg.
In response to the news, the IAEA told the publication that it conducts thorough assessments of the information it receives and uses. The CIA has so far failed to comment.
